Customer: We don't know what we want, but we want it yesterday.
Sales: No problem.
Me: WTF?
I'm not even mad or stressed anymore. You didn't ask me before, so why should I bend and break, so that you don't have to deal with staving the customer. Most of the time, he changes his requirements or is the bottleneck himself, anyway.

    Known that. Been there.

    The 3 stages of grief:
    * WHAT THE ACTUAL FU## IS WRONG WITH YOU?
    * That has to be possible. Let's crunch through it.
    * What deadline? I didn't give you an INFORMED estimate on a realistic schedule, so there cannot be one.
