GUESS WHAT? HE WANTS ANOTHER FUCKING FEATURE!

AND WHEN I SAID I DIDN’T HAVE TIME BECAUSE CODE-COMPLETE IS TOMORROW, HE SAID HE’LL PUNT IT TO NEXT YEAR INSTEAD OF RELEASING IT THIS WEEK SO I CAN “BUILD IT RIGHT.” MAN, FUCK YOU AND YOUR ENDLESS CHANGES!

THIS WAS GOING TO BE A TWO WEEK TICKET UNTIL HE STARTED ADDING ENDLESS FEATURES AND CHANGES AND SURPRISES. IT’S BEEN FUCKING MONTHS! I AM SICK OF THIS SHIT!

There goes my Q4 performance review.

    Months on a single ticket?! Damn, that's insane. Can you not persuade him that it's better to create new tickets for new work so it can be tracked and signed off properly? Or does the guy really not have any clue whatsoever?!

    @AlmondSauce
    He’s the horn of plenty, except instead of an endless feast, it’s changes and feature requests.

    He’s the butt that keeps on crapping.

    oh, I love things like these "performance" reviews.

    I guess this happens in some form of official meeting, with this dude attending? with a senior lady-/dude that is above this one's position?

    let the beast out @Root. what are they going to do? fire you, because you said the truth?

    ok, it might be not the best idea to go full throttle on that one, but srsly. this shit show can't go on.

    You're not developing cyberpunk 2077 by chance?

    What?!? Where out of Rum again?
    Would you stop drinking it all already and buy more.

    @C0D4 It’s whiskey.
    I have a nice bottle right here and it’s getting lighter. So is my head. And my cares.

    Better? Kinda.

    I finished that bullshit ticket and pushed it. He better be happy about it. Grumble grumble grumble.

    @Root rum, whisky, it's all the same by the end of the second bottle.

    @Root he won’t be happy. Your brilliant product manager will ask you to add more things and eventually you’ll spend so much time on this thanks to his infinite requirements that you’ll end up as your team’s screwdriver engineering master

    Ehem, this is additional, log another ticket. Please. 🦄

    Just wait for the moment when new features will stop being called "features" and instead they'll start calling them "bugs". Happened with our client... He refused to pay for new features because: "no, I definitely mentioned this before, so if It's not implemented It's a bug and Im not paying you for bugs"

    It's easy to lose track with feature creep and the client might be sure he mentioned something, but it was prolly just in his dreams

    @Hazarth That’s what written specs are for!

    Doesn’t help me, though, because the product guy just adds onto the jira tickets and google docs outlining the features.

    And another change.
    And another change.

    Called him out in it during standup with my boss there. He insisted he hasn’t made any changes or feature requests, only improvements and bugfixes. I laughed and said he changed the links three times already. Boss told him he’s been changing things for the last three weeks.

    His shenanigans are pushing out two security tickets with a hard due dates to next year because he wants endless trivialities. And it’s pissing me, my boss, and security off.
  • 6
    @Root so his stupid add ons are more important to him than security? That plus pure bullshit about not asking for more stuff to pile on. He’s a joke, hopefully this abuse won’t last long

    ARE YOU THE ONLY ONE IN THE COMPANY WHO GETS TREATED THIS WAY?
    If there are more of you, you should write a complaint together. If you're singled out, get outta there asap.

    @AtuM No, it’s expected from the two product guys. Endless request dumping like this is fortunately somewhat rare, but absolutely still happens. Here it was because I was moving, and so taking a lot of half days, my boss was out so I had fewer protections against the behavior, and it was a complete rewrite of a feature and all of its plumbing.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am still pissed off.

    IS client paying for that?

    @Hazarth Now, this is why people communicate in written form, so that they can stab email into client face and say: here you wanted this!
