The self-proclaimed Agile PM

It went along these lines...

IT Project Manager: "...QA finished testing on our internal Staging environment so we can go live with the feature and turn it on right away for all customers!"

Scrum Master: "Hmm, but wait, QA already said they would need 3 full days to thoroughly test the new feature in production before we can actually turn it on for any real customer..."

IT PM: "3 full days? Didn't you hear what I just said? They've already tested the feature on Staging!"

SM: "Err... Staging servers are inside the company. Our production servers are with AWS."

IT PM: "Do you want to be agile or not?"

True story.
