We take over development of a live customer facing system and PM agrees date for our first code deployment with client CIO
Me: The dev and staging environments don't have any test data currently as the old agency screwed it up
PM: Well you better load some
Me: There isn't any... It'll take 10 days to copy prod db due to hosting provider SLAs, leaving 1 week for SIT, UAT and performance testing (assuming they don't screw up)
PM: Well the date is set, 1 week will be enough for testing

    Uh oh. This may not have a happy ending. Control that PM. Customer facing could get nasty without testing. Finger pointing... test properly. Good luck. Let us know the ending.

    Yikes, good luck with that one. Make sure that conversation is documented in e-mail and you might want to bring it up with the PM's lead.
