Nanny(aka The Client): Very good, you have done well. And surprisingly you have done it without my help. Excellent. I have been trying to break it but all attempts are failures. Excellent, it is highly recommended that the program be transported to production.
Abaper: Thank you for the compliment.
Nanny(aka The Client) was so angry upon learning that Abaper’s work failed in production.
Nanny(aka The Client): Your work failed! I am going to file an incidence report to HR.
Gardener(The Boss of Nanny): From now on, we shall be putting you under probational status.
Abaper: I would suggest that the entire program be replaced with a new program because of the faulty design and it has become very slow. One exceptional example is the table BSEG was accessed 20 times when it could have been read just once. Another remarkable observation is the determination of a paid invoice. I have worked on a similar program before and believe me it is not that simple.
Nanny(aka The Client): Oh, no no no… you just do not understand the situation…and please respect my 18 years of SAP experience. You still need to learn a lot from this project.
Abaper: With all due respect, it is more advisable to inform them(Nanny’s Clients) of the severity of the situation so that they can alot more time and budget for the program before it is too late. This is never meant to be of disrespect to you, it is about the program itself…it is really needed and besides, my task cannot be done without these changes.
Nanny(aka The Client): I created the program myself and I have 18 years experience, what are you talking about?
Abaper is an experienced new hire at Accenttuate but was not oriented about the specific procedures or protocols in the project. Nanny(The Team Lead) was an awardee of Woman of Integrity.
Abaper: Hi Enduser, Nanny(The Cleint). The revision of the program is done and you may now test it in Dev.
Enduser: What? I do not have access in Dev.
Nanny(The Client): Abaper, we do not let Enduser test the program in Dev. I should be the one to inform them? Hadn’t anyone told you that before?
Abaper: I am so sorry, I am not aware of such procedure.
Nanny(The Client): Nanny(The Team Lead) should have told you this. but any that’s ok, next time, do not do it again ok?
Nanny(The Team Lead): Oh I forgot to tell you, but anyway, now, you know. The rule is we do not have the authority to let the Enduser do the testing in Dev.
Abaper: Got it!
Abaper: Hi Nanny(The Client), the revision of the program is finish and is ready for your testing.
Nanny(aka The Client): Hi Abaper, this is not what I want. Nanny(The Team Lead) should have test it first. Haven’t she told you that?
Abaper: She only told me that I should not let Enduser test it in Dev. I am so sorry.
Nanny(The Team Lead): So now you know, from now on, I should test your program first before you let Nanny(The Client) know about it. Ok?
