LOL this is one of my favourite subjects Smile | :) Not just everything you've said, but the emails 30 minutes later with all of your managers CC'd in asking if there is "any progress?" Then there is "tester driven design" where rather than ensuring the ticket meets the specs, they'll raise an issue if it does something they think it shouldn't, or doesn't do something they think it should.

"I've failed this because the widget doesn't highlight when hovered over"
"I've checked the specs and the acceptance criteria, and gone over my meeting notes, and I don't see that listed as a requirement?"
"I know, I just think it should highlight when hovered over"

*30 mins later*


Then there is the constant interruptions if they've found a bug. If you find a bug log it in the tracker, I don't need you to stop me from what I'm doing to show me that when you click this button with the textbox empty that you get an error. Just raise it in the tracker.

Then to cap it all off, when bugs gets missed and make it live do the testers ever get any blow-back or criticism? Nope....

I've straight up not renewed a contract as I couldn't stand the testers.
