Conference call with customer:

Me: You want your customers to see orders that YOU cancelled on them? Are you sure about that? Won't that upset some of them?

Customer: Nope we want that.

Me: Uh ok....

-weeks later-

Customer: OMG OUR CUSTOMERS CAN SEE ORDERS WE CANCELLED!!!

    My normal response to these is, “I need that request in writing.” They are like “You don’t need other things in writing but why this time?”
    “It is important to document when you ask for something that we don’t advise.” And that seems to get them to write it down and think about why we suggested against it.

    Won't happen. Ever.

    Like me :

    "Guys, here are examples of BEFORe and AFTER" please check them, tell me if something is wrong.

    Client : All good"

    Me : Executing in production

    Client 2-3 moth later : ONG it's so buggy the thingy A is not there !"
    Me : You asked to removed it"
    client : "No we doidn't".

    Sometimes I would like to be able to punch someone into face through Teams or slack or whatever.
