    Default New Demanding and Arrogant Contract BA at Client Co

    New contract BA guy rocks up to my desk, you know the sort, thinks he knows absolutely everything, about everything.

    Slightly shifty, foxy, type of character, totally arrogant, walks around like he owns the place.

    Turns out after lots of blithering about and mumbling Varchar this, Varchar that, turns out all the stupid twunt actually wants is a new table.

    Anyway, in his so called spec, it turns out he hasn't given aliases for all the fields

    In addition, he didn't even seem to know what most of the fields are data wise.

    Total clown.

    What should I do

    Quite happy to, its just all the unnecessary nonsense that he insists goes along with it.

    Assigning number of characters to Varchars indeed, I mean its not as though disk space costs a fortune these days.

    Such over engineering is just absolute time wasting IMO.

    he is probably in the market for a generator...

    never gets old.

    maybe talk to him about cricket?

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    I could, but he actually looks quite unfit.
    Looks like a heavy drinker, most probably into drugs too.

    So, unsure if he would know anything about the game

    Which begs the question, could he be "one of us"...?
    His heart is in the right place - shame we can't say the same about his brain...
