Yeah, what that Gene feller said;^)

What struck me was how Bob is looking at your duties and responsibilities.
Along the lines of being deliverable-driven, it sounds like Bob looks at
documentation as an end to a means: just keep peckin' away at your keyboard.

So what did Bob tell you that you had to deliver? What are your
deliverables? Have you met previous deadlines, if any?

If Bob is judging his employee's worth based on the number of keys they
press in a day, then Bob is an idiot.

It's not even a question of "worth it." You and "Bob" have seriously
incompatible views of what your job is and how your performance
is measured. Sooner or later one of you will decide to sever your
relationship with the company. It is always better to walk out and
take your carpet with you than to have it pulled out from under you.
