bossperson 1: “do x.”
me: “ok”
bossperson 1: “oh, and also (not instead) implement all of bossperson 2’s instructions, which ought to be easy enough.”
me: “ok”
bossperson 2: “undo x.”

See if you can get em to visit the Mall of America for Christmas. I hate to have to buy a plane ticket just for the pleasure of killing someone for a friend:)

i’d start answering to “job,”
except i don’t want to encourage either party in the proliferation of an already unwieldy god-complex.

Isn’t the normal Bossperson 1 response “Yes, well, you should know how to manage around that.”

Dear bossperson1,
You have instructed me to do x. bossperson2 has instructed me to undo x. How do you wish me to proceed?
p.s. In the absence of clear guidance, my default response will be to execute “halt and catch fire.”
