A project manager is the sort of person that thinks, 3 women can produce one baby in 3 months

Author — CptObvious


I wonder what would happen to this company if this guy quits

Author — Nicholas Lau


This is painful to watch. Especially if you're a real life Anderson.

Author — Nambeye J Katebe


I feel for Anderson, as a developer I've been in similar non-sensical meetings.

Author — Adam Nicholls


75% is also 75 / 100 which means they can produce 75 prototypes and when he's done we can ship the other 25. Its much more efficient than shipping only 3!

This scenario happened exactly 3 hours ago in our project meeting

Author — Kapitan Blue


What I don't understand is why 90 degrees was the bottom value tested for right angles. I believe an 81 degree right angle would be better. It is 10% more efficient than a 90 degree right angle, and so we could expect it to work perfectly 9 out of 10 times.

Alternatively, the right angle problem would have been resolved using a straight angle. R&D should look into developing straight angles. As we all know, in theory, straight angles are ambidextrous, so using them would allow them to be used for both right angle and left angle applications.

I feel like I missed the "Design me a pie chart to show 114%" episode. I can just see how it would have gone down. "Anderson, you seem fixated on circles with this pie-chart problem. You're the expert, I shouldn't have to be creative for you, but maybe you should try a square. Think outside the box a bit." Then, someone else, "Clearly if he can't show 114% with his circle, then he needs a bigger circle. I'm not saying I understand everything Anderson does, but this is obvious. If you need more, make it bigger."

this is not a comedy at all. I would have spit in the project manager's face.

Author — Tsuning Goon


With 25 years in IT, this is so very depressingly familiar.

Some brown nose gives infeasible suggestions that the actual competent people are expected to deliver. The brown nose uses buzzwords that the managers have heard, to make himself sound competent. This forces those doing the actual implementation to work stupid hours to get something that might just pass the smell test. Corners are unavoidably cut because of this and then afterthought bandaids are required when customers are angry that the product or service is broken in design and implementation.

In the end, if this actually succeeded, the brown nose gets the credit and the bonus, but if it fails the competent implementers get the blame.

Rinse repeat, until someone goes postal.

Brilliant writing, brilliant acting. He has the perfect WTF face, someone should make a meme out of it. LoL

I do technical stuff that are hard to explain to laypeople in any kind of comprehensive way without explaining like 10 different technologies. Sometimes I have similarly frustrating meetings and interactions at work. I often show these skits to friends and family to explain what those are like for me. I'd gladly support a patreon or whatever to keep these coming!

Before it was funny. Now I'm just conflicted on whether I should give Anderson a hug or just punch everyone else.

This is an accurate representation of how most game companies publish games?

"we've decided to use right angle for the square project" 0:37
I would suggest to better use circle for the square project🤣

Author — Mohammed Ehtesham


He's decided to use the right angle for the square project, and he's getting Anderson to remove any pesky left angles,  but he forget to tell Anderson to make sure the lines in the right angle run parallel to each other. ^_^

Don't be the expert of the company, you'll do the whole work

Author — OZLA


I feel like Anderson is going to shoot them all one day XD

As much as I love these videos, they make me really angry :D keep it up!
