A developer asked to shadow me for a bit. She wanted to learn more about what I do.
Thinking about it a bit, I realized something. I deal with the customers. I get the specs from them and take their problems (bugs) to dev for investigation. I am good at dealing with people. And that’s when it hit me—I’m Stan Smykowski.
“I deal with the goddamn customers so the engineers don’t have to. I have people skills; I am good at dealing with people. Can’t you understand that? What the hell is wrong with you people?”
Then again, maybe I’m just jumping to conclusions.
(Still. Funny thought.)
