Dear Managers,

Yes, I accept that certain things in life are funny. I can accept ironies and Murphy’s law. I can look at the lighter side of things. I can even take some of your dumb questions in the same vein as when the blonde heroine asks “What happened?” to James Bond (who’ll give answers like “He caught a train” or “I gave him a hand”). I can even appreciate how hard it is for you to pay tax for the bonus you received for bagging the Best Manager award.

But certain things are NOT funny.

Even if managers who are technical enough to switch off their PC’s or laptops without a “The Complete Idiot’s guide to Shut Down Windows XP” are fast becoming extinct, you should at least be able to read mails which contain detailed instructions (sent by someone who knows how dumb people can get to be) and follow them. Agreed. At times you may want to use something called intelligence and showcase your estimable knowledge of the application. But not at 11.30pm just before you go to sleep, never on days where a particular cycle of the project is ending, and never ever on issues which you have yourself called ‘burning’, ‘hot’, ‘critical’, ‘highly visible’ (even if you do have a tendency to call the same about anything you haven’t heard before).

Coz, in the end, some poor li’l developer like me will have to get into conference calls in the middle of the night and even start blogging about how he came to be in it.
