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.

Where's "stay late all weekend coding the fix"? I guess it wouldn't fit the meter...

My favorite is always, it's not a bug, it's a feature. Of course, the first thing I ask is "Have you re-booted?". I could go on about the current app were installing, which after 2 major releases and 6 release releases of the major releases, still doesn't work right and now some of the features don't work that worked in previous releases. We're about 5 months behind schedule all because of the vendor.
