Ranchu436623dSee, this is why I'm somewhat scared of working in that branch in the future.
God the guy sucks
rootofskynet4623dthat sounds like a person, which knows about leadership. not.
Demolishun685523dIf you call him on this he will just mansplain it. I wonder if he has an internal dialog that doesn't include other people.
Also, if for some reason it doesn't work you can blame him.
Root6345923dOh, and I finally managed to get him to admit that the ticket's scope is ridiculously large.
In his words: "completely overwhelming and completely unrealistic," amounts to "several months of work," and should be broken up.
How did he not realize this before? did he not pay attention? did he not care?
As much as Ilike working on something until it's finished, I kinda want to see progress and cross things off. and I totally don't want to double or triple (or 10x) my workload with the endless merge conflicts that would absolutely happen since I'm rewriting part of basically every model and controller in the application while there's active development going on.
With any Peter principled manchild manager, I've found you basically have to make the failure theirs before they'll even consider entertaining the idea they're wrong. Then they take credit for your work. They're so far our of their depth they can't see the light of day, so in their mind their entire job is putting out faerie fire. I feel for you. 🤦♀️
magicMirror675823d@Root I usualy use inception for this.
Drop the idea a few times, and pretend to struggle with the task, then ask for help, until he "comes up" with a "new" idea. Then say "thats impossible".
He will try and prove that "his" idea is the correct solution....
You will not get credit - but with this type of a-hole manager, you never will.
bioDan550516dThis is so relatable. I don't know if its because of his ego or he secretly finds you professionally intimidating. Nevertheless, he should step out of himself and listen to your points more actively.
You, on the other hand, can perfect your skills for emphasizing on points and standing your grounds when you know you're absolutely right.
It maybe followed by a heated discussion once or twice, which will end with you being right, but in the end you will earn respect, and my ++
IntrusionCM177415di remember we talked about this...
Bloody christ.... That refactoring is like the cartoon scenes where a boat is leaking water and they realize that putting fingers and toes in the holes won't help, they'll still drown.
Even IF you can plug all the places where this occurs, a fuckton of subtle regressions is likely.
Dang.... :/ And that guy sounds like he needs to develop some brain.
If someone would come up with something big as that, I would definitely thank him/her for being brave and having the guts to tackle that beast.
