Chris: What the fuck is this shit!?!?
1) this is the problem
2) this is how to fix it
3) this is how long it will take to fix it
4) these are the problems we're going to face IF we fix it
5) these are the problems we're going to face IF we don't fix it
Chris: Go fix it:
Engineer: you do realize that if we do this, we're like fucked for like over a year, right?
Chris: Go fix it:
Engineer: OK then
Chris: (over a year later): Is it fixed?
Chris: Why the Holy fuck not?
Engineer: Well, remember 3 & 4? We're there now
Chris: Fuck! Any short-term solutions?
Engineer: Yeah. There is a plan 2B, but it's more fucked and isn't guaranteed to solve the problem fully
Chris: Do it
Chris (six months later): Why is 2.0 not ready?
Engineer: Remember Plan 2B? We tried it. Still shit. But we're working on it.
Chris: Anniversary sale is coming up, that ass-clown Derek Smart has been making noise. We need to prove him wrong and release 2.0!
Chris (Nov 2015): Why is 2.0 not ready?
Engineer: Remember Plan 2B? We're still trying. Still shit. But we're working on it.
Chris: Anniversary sale is in TWO FUCKING WEEKS!!! ARE YOU SHITTING ME RIGHT NOW?!?!
Engineer: No, I'm not. It's complex. Because math is hard?
Chris: Fuck it. We're releasing 2.0. We have to save face, show progress and sell that fucking Crucible
Engineer: Uhm, you sure, that's like a whole shit ton of...
Chris: I said ship it. Stick it in PTU and we'll play it off. I'll rattle off a non-existent shit, fan boys will lap it up and understand it's in the PTU so it's not expected to work. And by that time that wears off in six months, you clowns would have fixed it, right?
Engineer: Yes. I think so. But you do know that my last day is Dec 1st, right?
Chris: Fuck you.
