QA: Hey I found a bug.
Me: Okay, can you log the bug and assign to me?
QA: <audible sigh> sure

    I am a student assistant who works as a trester. Writing down the problem report is not the most fun part. Still I rather like it to do myself, because than I can make sure that it is descriptive enough that anybody understands the problem and can test if the fix does the job.

    It often happens that a problem report written by a developer is so cryptic that you have to ask the developer anyway.

    Yeah us devs can do that. I'm sorry for that. Sometimes there is no good way to explain a fix to a bug or feature. In my case I usually just write a simple explanation and then write for QA to come to me before testing so I can show them. Takes some time, but IMO QA should be an asset which you can use. ☺

    I like it your way. In such cases I would not need to think that the developer assumes that I have to understand it and first try for an hour without success. I can then go to the developer right away. Unfortunately this rarely happens. @arekxv
