Micro-rebellion [Apr. 25th, 2007|11:19 am]
Observation for the day:

If someone doesn't follow your detailed directions precisely, it may not be because they didn't understand or you weren't clear in your explanation.

It may be because they thought your directions were stupid and obnoxious, and they decided that, while they would still perform the appointed task, it wasn't worth their while to bother with the idiot details you attached to it.

And now, I'm off to misapprehend some details.

You seem to be determined to take offense at everything I say. And it’s not fair to the Doc here to get into a pissing match on his journal.

So let me just suggest that, as both the change management team lead and the person who built the QA department here from scratch, I might actually know what I’m talking about. And that it would be a waste of time and bandwidth for me to explain to you the very many ways in which you are mistaken about the way we run our shop.

And let us draw this tangent to a close.
