Customer: I’m getting a result that could only occur if I did something stupid.

Me: did you do something stupid?

Customer: no.

Customer: We’re testing your latest version and our workflow now throws an error in the event log instead of importing our data.

Me: Yes, in your old work flow you didn’t do X which would silently lead to data corruption. Now, instead, it noisily warns and stops working until you’ve done X.

Customer: Well it didn’t used to throw an error so could you change it back?

Customer: I’m getting an error saying I need to update my dependencies.

Me: have you tried updating your dependencies?

Customer: why would I want to do that?

Customer: We only want data from the involved companies

Me: But you… you haven’t involved any companies though?

Customer: The companies that would have been involved if we involved any companies.
