in thread The Drama of Being a Developer IV - Quality is something else altogether

It's funny. I've had lunch with the two people that put me in this position (my boss and the Quality Manager) a number of times since their meeting, and not once was this part of the project discussed. Not in passing, not even a good-humored "Had enough yet?"

My boss told me, what would probably be 2 or 3 days after their big meeting, that my biggest priority was the portal now that the project was moving forward (see parts 2 and 3 for more details), and that everything else was secondary. When I approached him about that statement, and asked him how he could, in retrospect, knowing I had that deadline, have made that comment, he shrugged and commented that he didn't know that it was going to be so much work.

Of course, I didn't know that it was going to be ANY work. He also said that he thought it strange that I hadn't commented on that particular piece of the project at that time either, but chalked it up to me being a team player.

WTF?!?

Since when have I been known as a team player, especially when it comes down to me being someones b#!@%?

I have to laugh at the situation, otherwise, cf. my "Freeing Organs up to Donors lists" comment in the CB.
