Sometimes Just Too Nice (Or Too Awesome)

I'm gonna chalk this one up under "Not Burning Bridges." My boss will not be here on Wednesday. He asked me if I wanted my last day to be Tuesday. I was all over this idea. Done deal.

Three hours later, thanks to being the awesome tester I am, I killed the product with a show stopper with 100% repro steps. That's what you get when you churn code.

We were supposed to ship today.

Yeah, well. No.

I got asked to be on the SWAT team to deal with the showstopper. Did I say no? Of course not. I said, "Sure. You can have me until 3pm Wednesday. My exit interview is at 3:30 over at Endeavor." It was a reflex.

Ah, well. It's $$ and good will.
