petergriffin40730dEvery day for me. I’m even canceling other meeting two hours ahead now.
eo2875217430dThat has definitely happened to me, but also the opposite.
Me: hey do you have some time right now? We need to discuss some important details about this feature and it might take a while.
I had prepared a presentation and some code examples and I thought it'd take mea long time explaining the problem, but I was so prepared I get it under 5 mins. I think my opinion is controversial, but they're conviced
Me: and... I think that's it. Oh no and... wwel yeah I already mentioned it...
Coworker / boss: ok.
Me: so should we do A, B, or C?
Coworker: you seemed to prefer C, so let's go with C.
Me: okay yeah...
qwwerty70229dIs it because A wants you just to confirm his ideas within 5 minutes and you shatter his dreams over the hour because he's an optimistic moron or does he just fails at time estimations?
A is a management moron without any technical understanding.
He comes, throw a shitty idea and asks for delivering it during the current sprint.
So each fucking time I have to be a bold, handsome developer and explain to him why his idea must wait and he shouldn't modify the current sprint plan but wait for the next one.
I have to deal with his bullshit every sad day wasting a shit ton of time.
