I noticed the pair of them sitting on the tablenext to ours in the club. One of them seemed to be very over dressed in normal clothes. It turned out that the prettier one in a skimpy black dress was there doing the job for the first time and her friend was along for 'moral' support. So when I suggested a strip in the lapodancing room, she said I had to tell her what to do which of course I did. It was kind of strange as she seemed to get really into it and said she enjoyed the reaction on my face to what she was doing. Tried to get her phone number off her but she was too shy.
I think the main problem with the job is the lack of a project manager to help me negotiate realistic timeframes and set goals. I've always had one on jobs before even when I've being dealing mostly with the users day to day. My boss and most of the other staff have no real experience with programmers so they just set unrealistic targets and expect me to deliver and I'm not being allowed to negotiate. Communication is lousy. I've tried writing specs and timetables and getting user agreement on these but these are being ignored in favour of just day to day instructions and changes in spec and scope. Getting pretty fucked off.
