Never be a Developer

Roshan D'Mello (QA Tester) 
Developer (Mukesh Thakur) 

Roshan D'Mello: Hey Mukesh, there is a bug in your code. Type a text in 
username text box and press enter. Beep sound doesn't appear. 

Mukesh Thakur: How can that be a bug? There is no requirement that beep 
sound should come. Anyway, I will assign it to offshore and get it 

After 2 days, 

Mukesh Thakur : Roshan, bug is fixed. Please verify. 

After another 2 days, 

Roshan D'Mello : I have re-opened the bug because sound is not coming in 
some PCs. Sound is coming in my machine, but my colleague Rajat Choudhry 
is not getting the sound. 

After another 2 days, 

Mukesh Thakur : Not a bug. I observed that your friend Rajat Choudhry has 
Old IBM machine. Unlike your DELL machine, IBM machines do not have inbuilt 
speakers. So, to hear the sound in Rajat Choudhry's machine, please use 
head phones and then get the bug closed soon. 

Another 2 days, 

Roshan D'Mello : I have re-opened the bug because sound tone is 
Different across different machines. Sound is coming as 'BEEP' in my machine, but 
My colleague Rajat Choudhry who is having IBM machine is getting the sound 
as 'TONG'. 

Mukesh Thakur : Not a bug. Get lost man. What can we do for the bug? The 
Two machines are built in such a way that they produce different sounds. Do 
You expect the developers to rebuild the IBM processors to make them 
Please close it. 

Another 2 days, 

Roshan D'Mello : I have re-opened the bug because intensity of beep 
Sound produced on 2 different DELL machines is different. My machine produces 
Beep sound of intensity 10 decibels whereas my friend's machine produces 
Sound worth 20 decibels. Fix your code to make the sound uniform across all 

Another 2 days later, 

Mukesh Thakur : Once again it is not a bug. I have noticed that the 
Volume set is different on the two machines. Ensure that volume is same in both 
The machines before I get mad and then close the bug. 

Another 2 days, 

Roshan D'Mello : I have re-opened the bug. 

Mukesh Thakur : What ?? Why? What more stupid reasons can be there for 

Roshan D'Mello: Sound intensity is different for machines placed at 
different locations (different buildings). So, I have re-opened it. 

After 2 days, 

Mukesh Thakur : I have made some scientists do an acoustical analysis of 
two buildings you used for testing. They have observed that the 
acoustics in the two buildings varies to a large extent. That is why sound intensity 
is different across the 2 buildings. So, I beg you to please close the 

After 1 year 

Roshan D'Mello : I am re-opeing the bug. During the year, I requested 
The clients to arrange architects to build two buildings with same 
Acoustical features, so that I can test it again. Now, when I tested, I found that 
intensity of sound still varying. So, I am re-opening the defect. 

Mukesh Thakur : GROWLLLL.....I am really mad now. I am sure that the 
Sound waves of the two buildings are getting distorted due to some background 
noice or something. Now I need to waste time to prove that it is because 
of background noice. 

Roshan D'Mello : No need for that. We will put the machines and run 
them in vacuum and see. 

Mukesh Thakur: ?? 
He is now in mental asylum while Roshan D’Mello has become QA Manager.
