Note: Late post because I've barely had time to breathe the last three days. This is from three days ago.
First Rule of Idiotic Project Management: There's never enough time to do it right the first time but there's always enough time to go back and do it again.
If the fool of a manager had listened to me in the first place, he wouldn't be in the mess he is in now. I warned him at the beginning that crowding the same amount of work into half the time, with the same number of people would never work. People have to sleep. Eating would also be helpful.
Now I have to bail him out. I do not see how a lack of planning on his part should constitute an emergency for me.
