Why some employees go crazy

Warning, communications within the company may be confusing!

This is an actual conversation I had with one of my old bosses.

Boss – How long will it take you to learn this new software?

Me – I don’t know.  How long do I have?

Boss – It doesn’t work that way.  Tell me how long you need.

Me – Hmmm, a week.

Boss – Can you do it in three days?

I, of course, said yes, but I should have said, “Did we really need to have this conversation? Couldn’t you have just told me I had three days to learn the new software?”
