Manager: This button is too dark, you need to lighten it. Have you no sense of design?

Dev: …

Dev: Hows this for an adjustment?

Manager: Wayyyyy too light now, jesus you need glasses if you think that’s good.

Dev: …

Dev: How about now?

Manager: It’s close, make it just a little more dark. God why does this have to take so long, do I have to hold your hand through this entire process!

Dev: …

Dev: There that good?

Manager: Yes that’s perfect! Send me a PR immediately so I can approve, we need to get this out ASAP, it’s critical!!

Dev: I can’t.

Manager: ????

Dev: There’s no diff, you had me gradually adjust the colour back to exactly what it was originally.

Manager: THAT’S IMPOSSIBLE IT LOOKS COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. HOW DARE YOU INSULT ME LIKE THIS, I HAVE A MEETING I NEED TO GET OFF TO BUT WE WILL BE HAVING WORDS LATER ABOUT THIS INAPPROPRIATE BEHAVIOUR.

Dev: …

    I knew exactly where this was going, and I'm still laughing my ass off.

    @iSwimInTheC I showed him the values are the same and after a period of denial/accusing me of trickery he’s back to not talking to me/sulking about it. He tried finding the secret hex value I was “hiding” from him himself but always ended up on the same solution, that’s what eventually broke him.

    Happens a lot. I see something is odd, investigate further, try some other values and settle on the best possible one - which happens to be what it was before. Only difference is: It still looks off after that journey...

    @hack Pay is good for my experience/credentials in Canada. Working on applying elsewhere for months now but I don’t have a degree and don’t yet have enough DS+A skills to make even a horizontal move. Working on it but it’s slow going.

    This happened to me multiple times. But then, I would say "you can align on colors with UI/UX. I use colors not choose them"

    Remember these days too. Glad that now my team only accepts UI changes if it was made by designer and approved by PO while it’s still on the “photoshop”.

    This actually happened to me, except for me it was font-size

    i was kinda hoping for "i made no change to the color this whole time, just kept sending you the same one asking if it's ok now", but this circling back to the start is the second best option.

    @Midnight-shcode Hahaha, next time next time. It was screen sharing so a little harder to spoof. His head would have separated from his body had I done that
