Me: “hey our documentation claims X only works in case of Y [ what Y actual is being described as is in a rather confusing manner ] can you clarify that?”

Leadership doofus 1 : “yes that is correct, Y must occur EXACTLY that way for X to work.”

Leadership doofus 2: “X can can technically work without Y but it doesn’t work that well”

Not issues THEY’D be expected to fix. ( trying to appeal to my vanity, yet at the same time
there really is no other set time to go over this kind of shit )

I just got flashbacks to when I managed a team of 7 direct reports and half the time I'd cancel my weekly check-ins with my team members because they had no real updates and god damn I hated that fucking job and I'm so glad I'm not in it any more
