Me : We need a resource that can help us achieve the deadlines that you set and the sudden requirement changes that arrive.

Manager: What are the requirement specifics?

Me: Candidate should have industry experience and have worked on such and such projects.

Manager: Better to take new interns. We can have 4 interns in cost of 1 full time.

Me: What about skills and relevant experience?

Manager: You can teach them right?

Me: What about the deadline then?

Manager: You will have 4 people to achieve deadline.


I am currently in a contract for 1 year that expires in May. Should I breach the bond and run from this shit manager? Should i persist like a stoic?

Help me people, I am dying working under this piece of shit that doesn't even know where to type git clone and claims himself to be very technically advanced!

    Next time say: “Oh sure! And 10 women can make a baby in one month!”

    Then walk away and let him ponder it. Then leave a copy of “The Mythical Man Month” on his desk. Then quit.

    “we need”, “help us”, “deadline you set” - bad words
    Talk about yourself and your desires. Otherwise he just told you his desires as you told him it’s “us”.

    I can’t achieve this feature/deadline.
    I need someone more experienced then me to help me with it.
    I am not a teacher.
    I can’t do two things at once.

    I am not good at giving advices but don’t talk “us” when only you’re doing job 🙃

    This is one of those cases where scaling out doesn't yield the same performance improvement as scaling up.

    Stay, blame manager then leave.
    Be sure to document every decision, good and bad, then burn the mother fucker.
