What is it about contracts that make people want to hide them in the draw (without having actually read the document) in the hope that they will never have to read or refer to them again?

Is it the presumed legal ‘lingo’ which quite frankly has even the most intelligent individual reading a sentence three times in a bid to understand the basics of what is being said?
Cue… The NEC3 Engineering and Construction Contract (June 2005)…
The NEC3 ECC (June 2005 Edition) (previously the New Engineering Contract) is not to be feared. It is to be become the process partner for contractors executing contracts.
The NEC3 ECC has been developed to be used in engineering, building and construction environments and has been written to meet the needs of contracting parties.
