The push back phrase my manager uses when I try to discuss a requirement which I think is incorrect:
"It was discussed and agreed upon at the beginning b/n PM and engineering"
To hell with that, if 10 people arrive at a stupid decision, its still a stupid decision

I just sit back until the project progresses much further and wait for another senior dev whom they can't ignore to bring up the same issue.
It is supremely frustrating 😤

    It’s a rebuttal that can go both ways though. When PM asks why the heck this was done that way, it’s nice to be able to respond by saying that it’s a consequence of a decision they made. So they should either live with it or tell us what they want instead and give us the necessary amount of time to do it

    Nice, not everyone can work from inside a waterfall.
