I have to remember this because, at this moment, my SO is sort of my customer. She's deciding the specs for part of the credit card doohickey, and I've finally gotten her to agree to something firm about them.
I've been taking a lot of deep breaths as we dance around each other's situation. Hers is based partly on the politics of the collections department; mine is based entirely on what I can (and cannot) do with Perl. Needless to say, I feel mine are more justifiable, but realistically hers are going to set the standard.
I need to come back to this entry when I am frustrated beyond belief (again), as I probably will be.
