-- How I feel at work lately, in terms my wife understands --

Me: There's a gas leak, we need to fix it.

Manager: Yeah, use some duct tape, here's a roll.

Me: That's not how we fix a problem like this.

Manager: Will it work to solve the problem?

Me: Only temporarily

Manager: Ask your co-worker if you need help using duct tape, he's used it before. When will it be fixed?

    The good ol' "permanent temporary solution". Thing is, there's so much turnover nowadays, your manager might not even be there when it'll break.

    I feel like nowadays devs change their company on every other completed pruoject, people don't care much because they won't be there if any issues arise.

    Sometime it feels like receiving a chewed up gum instead of a roll of duct tape

    My situation:

    Development: Sir, we have a major gas leak.

    Manager: What gas leak? I don’t smell anything.

    Development: Sir, we really need to fix it. If anyone goes out for a smoke now..

    Manager: i don’t hear a gasleak either. What are you talking about?

    Development: Sir, this leak will blow up the building soon. Do you remember last year when this happened at the neighbours and we tried to warn them?

    Manager: i’m hungry, let’s make some lunch!
