We used to have a wild cat that allowed us to use "her" garden. She always stared at me, and it was obvious that her thoughts were something like "If that guy stops moving for long enough, he's lunch!". No way am I letting any of her relatives into the house!

that you don't have to do any quantifiable work anymore?
yes, but when the slippage occurs even though you can blame the dev you have to deliver the news, and justify why they failed.
actually worst PM gig I had boss wanted me (on a late delivery) to tell the client X. Problem was it would mean lying to their faces.
I said, "no."
He said, "OK, expect your resignation letter ASAP." (I think expecting me to back down.)
2 minutes later he had my resignation.
Stupid pricks made me serve my notice. (about 2 weeks (4 weeks less leave), arrive late, long lunch, leave early (usually 5 minutes after getting back from lunch) - punctuated by ms solitair etc.) hmmm, next discussion topic
