I should see it coming by now... it happens every release. I’m so tired of the ‘but can’t you just build in this one more thing?’ meetings. If I tell them we can’t, they get mad. If I tell them we can and we don’t deliver, they get mad. So... you want the truth or do you want me to lie to you? Your choice!

    I hate the "I'm sure you can manage it. I believe in you" crap

    Easy: I deliver what we have planned on time or you take responsibility for me delaying this release another 2-3 days just so you can have this useless feature you’ll only use once.

    They usually see things my way after that.

    They want you to work massive amounts of overtime, for free, without any burnout effects or lingering resentment. :)

    @HollowKitty I finally convinced my employer that I wanted to be paid by the hour when I'm working rather than salary. So far it has worked in my favor, I average about 10 hours of overtime, and I've got 20 hours of overtime on my next check.
