Rants, Raves, and Rhetoric v4

Overheard In The Office

DBA: Some of you use stage in all lower case, some in all upper case, and some in mixed case. You have to all use one naming convention. The way you have written this, its not going to work.
Programmer: That is why I am here. I need you to fix their stuff so it will.
DBA: Do you know what a “Catch-22” is?
Programmer: No, but I have a feeling you are going to tell me.
DBA: Its when you do it one way which causes this to break. When you do it this other way it causes this other thing to break.
Programmer: Right, I just want to do it my way and it to work.
DBA: By breaking everyone else’s stuff?
