The Twelve Bugs of Christmas

(Sung, obviously, to the Twelve Days of Christmas)

For the twelfth bug of Christmas, my manager said to me:

12. Tell them it's a feature

11. Say it's not supported

10. Change the documentation

9. Blame it on the hardware

8. Find a way around it

7. Say they need an upgrade

6. Reinstall the software

5. Ask for a dump!

4. Run with the debugger

3. Try to reproduce it

2. Ask them how they did it and

1. See if they can do it again.
