Me: "Here is the new feature you asked for. You can select from the dropdown and if it's "Other" you can put the details in the text field next to it"
Them: "I need to add options to the dropdown"
Me: "If you need something added to the dropdown, just let me know and we can get it added, but we need to control that field"
Them: "It won't be necessary to communicate with you to add something to the dropdown"

Asked a provider for an endpoint that returns customer usage
Provider sends back an endpoint that takes 1 minute to return one days worth of data for 1 customer and asks we limit concurrency to 3... we have 3000+ customers with them
(1 minute * 3000 customers) / 3 = 16 hours to pull yesterday's numbers
Hope we don't get behind7

How do you even find 10 developers who "don't know databases"?11
