    I'm the wrong guy here, but I can't remember ever to be able to introduce a feature in a week.
    Is it only me?

    Can't you just inform him, that the dude needs to prioritise?

    I thought about writing out about the difference between the developer and the manager, but I realised something more important.
    Fuck management.

    Lol or it could just stop at the first "about one week" with a "wait one WEEK???"

    Dev: It’ll be 3 weeks for one developer.
    Manager: Ok then we can make it in one week with 3 devs!
    Dev: Nope. 9 weeks with 3 devs. Maybe longer.
