Arguing with my 21 years old friend-Me

Things are changing now. Share markets are quite high, your neighbors’ has new dazzling car, your friend has extra features mobile (which you think he can’t use all of them), and your boss has iPad 2. But you should not have any effect of that. You want to continue your work –  as you are doing from many years.

I am not the one who is thinking same way like yesterday. I always change my road. Sometimes it hurts me, but it’s good for testing freedom. I don’t want to be in one mud for  longer time, I need fresh water.

I take initiative to let people know something that they don’t know about. In this process you should also have patience to listen carefully what they say. Later, ask them questions. Just few ones, so that they will think they are not perfect still. This is how I start my discussion.

One software developing company in Pune has made a beautiful product, whose important function is to print the specific paper. They had claim on their website that the software is compatible to ANY printer. When I ask about testing of things like classes, models, drivers, interfaces, features of the printers with respect to software (blah blah) …she stopped me in between and said, we had a list of compatible printers with software CD.

And first they were claiming about ALL printers. This is like saying we have found 100% bugs and fixed those.


The best and worst thing happening to me in Pune is that I think different. I consider Test management, technical support staff, user manuals, privacy policy, history of product, marketing ways, legal things ,etc all the requires  for my  testing work.HR think that I should not look for them, ITS NOT MY JOB.

I have two choices educate or habituate. I chose first one .But how should I join certain software company who don’t need see their technical support staff report for their Testing. This is not the one, I have many objections.

The people around here think that I won’t suitable although I can test well. Yes, they are right. I will be their unmatchable part of team, but hey look; you will find that I am the best part of the team. And I already know that.

The one thing I want to mention, my blog helps to spread among all here like a virus. People started knowing me; they are respecting me, and asking curiously , “Oh, so you are Riyaj? “

I met many people here, and learn many things from them. If they Doesn’t have requirements and all, still they are in touch with me. After all, Hiring is a business decision and I know that.

I know that you are reading this but you should happy that I haven’t disclosed your name. Don’t worry. There are many- like you here around.
