TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
Years ago, in another galaxy, the technical writing
manager told me to stop ALL work on "Project A" and to
work solely on "Project B." So, I stopped all my work
on the first project amd worked solely on the second,
per my instructions.
Three weeks later, I was called into the manager's
office. The manager told me I was being put on
probation because "Project A" was not completed in
time for its deadline. The manager wanted to know why
I didn't let them know I was not going to complete it
for the deadline.
My response was: "If my manager tells me not to work
on a project, I assume my manager knows that I will
not be completing the project."
I was rewarded with a blank stare.
Years later, that just makes me laugh.
