I hate it when people don’t like what I tell them.
We are currently having an issue with some of our servers caused by a core switch. As they are not entirely sure what is wrong with it, they have not set an ETA, which I passed onto the parties affected by this outage. The problem is, they evidently didn’t believe me, and decided to ask other people. Why do people insist on doing that? It’s incredibly annoying, and makes it look bad on me.
This isn’t the only thing either. I’ve told people in the past that something wasn’t possible for a number of reasons, only to be CC’d in an email at a later point in a conversation with somebody else, as they decided to ask them instead.
