Jilano30745346dYour boss uses the same logic as Fry (from Futurama):
"It took me an hour to write it, so I thought it would take an hour to read."
katbreitin1240346dIs that his reaction to everything?
Your Boss - How long cook this Turkey.
You - It should take between 4 to 5 hours based on the size of the bird.
Your Boss - WHATTT??!!! totally unacceptable I know people that can cook a whole turkey in 20 minutes.
netikras26347346dYour first mistake was committing for/delivering in 2 months the first one
Demolishun12085346dBoss GF: This needs to take an hour!
Your Boss: WHAT! Too long it should only take 2 minutes.
Boss GF: Fine, I will find the developer you complain about. He takes the time needed to get the job done!
sariel782346dI was on a call with a bunch of c's and e's. They wanted to build this common service from scratch. After telling them we should probably just find one and use it they decided we should definitely build it.
Ok. After some quick high level requirements gathering.
How long would that take?
Oh and that's if we hire a 5 dev team.
I swear it was like I was talking to 7 lil Jon's.
Yeah, I'm probably going to get canned for that call. I know I have been passed over for a promotion because of it. Whatever, I would rather be competent and with my integrity intact than be promoted up to their level of ignorance.
SortOfTested24503346dDid he also tell how fast his nephew in high school could do it? Because that's would be totally in character for troglodyte boss.
