Product Owner: "need this doing in 6 months, can you do?"
Me: "we're too busy to start another project at the moment - can you wait about 6 months for it to start, or I'll have to hire more devs"
PO: "I'll just outsource it"

36 months later the company he outsourced to is out of business and hasn't delivered, and I've had their half-finished shit show git repo dumped on me.
No comments, no docs, and no units tests, so no fucking idea what it's supposed to do

    36 monts later... Thats too much time.

    PO: Hey do you remember the project that we decided to outsource about 3 years ago?
    You: No?
    PO: Doesn't matter. Its your project now.

    The road to hell is paved with the lifeless bodies of incompetent managers who thought outsourcing was a good idea.
