    PHB has no idea what a goldmine he has just opened for the poor engineering guys and gals. Wait until the cone-headed CEO calls him on the carpet for suddenly going way over budget….

    The bonus for bug finding is a great motivator for the QC team, the programmers should get a bonus anyway.

    Well, it got Wally motivated. That’s not easy.

    It’s not motivation….

    It’s sarcasm.


    The PHB doesn’t get that testing and troubleshooting for bugs, much less eliminating them, can take months…

    in a more reputable company, requiring beta releases and product testers.

    Offering them $10 each is a sad joke… so they’re mocking him.

    If that was their real goal, they would give you the time to write it correctly. What I like is they keep the project on their desks for months then give you a day or two to get it done, perfectly.

    If the boss were smart, he’d make it $10 for every bug you fix in someone else’s software and -$20 for every bug found in your own.

    I remember this one. It was based on something that actually happened. Some pointy-haired boss was that clueless. Not sure how many bugs were created and fixed before the company realized what they had done.

    A billion lines of code, 10,000 bugs fixed. Do the math.

    Why exactly does Wally need a mini-van?
