I used to work at the same place too but didn't get hit by that one as much. It seemed my job description detailed my responsibility to deliver prototypes as core business functions. You know the one. . . . here Simon, see if this works. . . . . thats nice, add a login to it cos I've promised a big client it will work by tomorrow afternoon.

Always a laugh. Almost as much as the old - give the team work without telling me and then drop me in it with the M.D cos I'm not keeping your promises - trick :)

Oh and of course, theres the one where a different manager walztes into your office and demands to know why your prototype (a.k.a business solution) is so cr*p and proceeds to attempt to berate you in front of your co-workers. Naturally you are receptive to this, even though he managed to wipe your new design off a meeting room whiteboard that you and the design team worked till 2am on and its STILL NOT his fault :)

Or maybe I'm just bitter :P
