7:00 am. The Cranky Product Manager awakes. Grabs the Blackberry Curve off the bedside table. Starts deleting spam. Opens the following email from a reader and starts laughing hysterically.
Darling Husband is startled awake and is like “what the???”
Dear Cranky Product Manager,
I have attached a picture of the real Veteran Engineer that works with me. I saw your post, the description of Mike, and bought the mug for him. He, in turn, sent me the proof that corroborates what you have posted beyond the shadow of a doubt.
Please feel free to post on the site.
All the best,
Sr. Product Manager
And here the photo, along with Mike’s disclaimers:
- No (party) animals were endangered during the filming of this picture.
- No additional clothing was needed to be purchased by the photo subject in order to take this picture.
You will notice that Mike The Veteran Software Engineer is holding a Veteran Software Engineer mug. The Cranky Product Manager is always a sucker for a good recursion gag. It reminds her of her lamda calculus-filled freshman year at a random institute of technology.
Note that you readers should all take this as a hint to BUY MUGS and give them to engineers.
Thanks Mike and Maggie, for giving the Cranky Product Manager a good chuckle!
