Yup, it was as bad as I expected.
Don't you love management that can't tell the difference between their fuckups and an emergency, and try to fix it by micromanagement?
Shockingly, I only almost-quit twice today, but the second time WAS almost fairly public and screamy. Thermonuclear weapons vs Bridge time.
Seriously, anybody know any place hiring very-senior backend software developers who don't want to be management?
