The Smackdown

Kicked off at my boss first thing this morning for his completely unrealistic deadlines. He expects me to finish a three week project in a week just because no one senior in our company actually managed to put together a decent specification or plan and so we've wasted loads of time and got stuff wrong.

It was pretty sweet because for the first time ever he had absolutely nothing, nada, zip, to say in return. He asked "why is it not going to be finished?" in an aggressive tone, and i listed the reasons in a slightly more aggresive tone. I didn't swear at him...for a change...and i think this might have been a contributing factor to my success. Once i'd finished my rant he pretty much asked if i could give it my best shot and i said yeah.

Think i might end up working on Saturday which will suck, but at least that'll mean another day off somewhere else down the line.
