Yeah... Going on holiday and leaving people with an undocumented bug. Not a great combination. Assumption is the mother of all fuckups. It can't hurt just to be prepared to defend yourself. As in: Have your arguments and facts set up as to what info you had, and what exactly was missing, with references to the stories / bugs. Good luck! Let us know how it went, and try to nevertheless enjoy the rest of your holidays
Redders10371yAre we talking bug, as in bugzilla task? Or a fault?
ipinlnd711yIf there's no documented request, just deny the whole thing. If there's (like an issue or sth) comment and explain the lack of intel.
cursee186721yHow did you contact your M and Eng?
Make sure all important communications are recorded somehow so that you can refer to them when necessary.
If you guys have a PM system, then describe what you encounter and request for assistance or whatever using that system.
If there is no such thing, use email. Inform your M the situation and CC the eng. Or send request help mail to Eng while cc'ing M.
You said you don't wanna burn any Bridges and the company has trust as a value. That doesn't mean you have to complete whatever task throw at you by all means. That means when you face tasks that you have trouble completing, you have to transparently explain those troubles and seek advices. If your colleagues can't listen your explanation nor give advices, how can you trust them?
