Angry Testers

I recently came across a question in Quora that “What makes a Tester Angry?”

I just recalled some of my conversations with my colleagues in the last 8 years and picked up some direct statements from them which really made me angry during the initial days of my career.

Of course I am used to it nowadays and I simply smile at them if I don’t have an answer. Just read and have fun.

Can you hurry up and finish testing soon? We’re under a very tight deadline.
I didn’t have time to read your bug report. Give me the 5-second version.

You won’t break it.
Oh, that’s not a problem. Let’s leave it.
How much time does it take to test?
Yes its a bug but don’t create issue for it, i will fix it right away
Its not a Bug.
Its not there in our Requirement.
I am not able to reproduce this issue in my machine.
Its not a Bug. Its a upcoming feature.

You need to think outside the box
You can find out for yourself
That’s not a bug, that’s a “nice” to have
Your computer is too slow.
End users won’t do such actions.
This is not in our acceptance criteria.
No user would ever do that.

But It works in production.
You should not test that.
You should not test in that way.
Maybe you can test in this way.
Our developers will give you some proper testing instructions. You just need to follow those.

Why you didn’t found out this defect in the earlier release?
How did you missed that defect?
Maybe I should talk to your QA Lead/Manager about this.
You need to setup your own test environment.
This must be a data issue.
Could you tried this after clearing cache and cookies?
Oh, this is what you are doing?
Have you tried after rebooting your machine?
Performance is not a big deal now. All we need is just a working product.

This is not Blocker/Critical. You have got some work around.
I need the test report in just 3 hours.
Oh, we got only 2 days? I will put one more resource from that project so that it will be completed in just one day.

That’s a part of your Role. That’s why we hired a Senior.
We can close this defect now to release the Product.
Here is your build. Start testing it right away. Enjoy your weekend. [On a Friday evening]

And the all time favorites are where all the QA hates to the core,
But it works on my machine!

Oh, Wait. I just quoted some statements that made me angry. But still there are couple of statements that will make you to loose your temper the moment you hear.

It’s a complete waste of our testing time.
Do we really need a QA?
