Is At Least Very Stupid

| NJ, USA | Working | March 17, 2014

(I develop websites for a variety of clients. My employer does the marketing. Her clients provide details of what they need, she writes up a specification, and I implement it. One such specification, for an online school, stated ‘students must select at least three courses.’’ I implemented the shopping cart just that way. Afterward, my boss calls to complain.)

Boss: “The client is complaining that the form won’t submit unless he selects three courses.”

Me: “That’s what the specification said: ‘students must select at least three courses.’ That’s what he asked for.”

Boss: “That’s wrong. ‘At least three’ means one or more.”
