My boss likes to measure the spacing between DOM elements using a ruler to make sure everything is proportional.

I forgot to remove some padding on an element so it wasn't exactly centered, so he comes in and says...

"the padding on the site is off, I think you need to use this" *drops ruler on desk*

Now I have to keep this stupid ruler on my desk because whenever I forget to align something he says... "that's why I gave you the ruler"

Too difficult to explain to these subhumans that I don't need a ruler to write proper css

    It's hilarious just imaging him putting the ruler against his monitor and leaning in to read it.

    Hmmmmm the button on the left seems to be about 2px higher than the button on the right. Aren't you using the ruler I gave you?

    You should make a ruler using pixels as a unit of measure and give it to him.
