Somebody kill me, please

So that you will truly understand the state of mind I’m in right now, I want you to read the following as if each capitalized word is punctuated by me hitting my head on a wall:


I used to think that, if you worked for developers who used to be architects, it would be better than if they had no architectural background. That, somehow, they would understand the process we go through in order to make everything work, and would be less of a pain in the ass.

I say to myself now, “HA! You fool!”

At the beginning of my work on this project, we would send them a drawing, and they would give us feedback in verbal form. Now, they’ve begun playing Project Poker. We send a drawing. They counter with a faxed sketch. We send another drawing. They see our drawing, and raise us a site plan change. Why are we even on this job? I’m beginning to think it’s only to be their CAD buttmonkeys.

And the extra super fun fact is, we’re not working for just one developer- we’re working for two. Twice the head-banging goodness!

I just came across your blog the other day and I find myself with some of the same feelings. I am a CADD Monkey as well, but I work for Civil Engineers.
