Lauris Beinerts : Check out the new episodes of The Expert: Square Project!

Jake Reason : My heart goes out to all the Andersons of the world. Because of your sacrifice, we get to live comfortable lives. Thank you.

Sylvia Else : The expert's salary is the lowest of any in the meeting.

Jimmy Murray : So what exactly is stopping us from doing this? Geometry. Just ignore it.

Sergius Master : Please, fix title - it is not sketch, it is documentary

Happy Magane : I think they should make this film longer, but in a form of a kitten.

erinpilla : This happens a lot with us. The people above keep making decisions and they don't even know how to do what needs to be done hahaha and when we explain it to them the limitations and what we can achieve, they go like "it's impossible?". I dunno. This video is disturbing for me and kinda triggered some anxiety attacks

Valicroix : After spending 45 years as an engineer interfacing with marketing, sales and the military, I can attest to the fact that this hits the nail on the head. People ask for ridiculous things while insisting that the cost and time frame for completion remain the same. In the meantime managers only want to hear "yes" regardless of how impossible the requests may be.

Trent Franklin : I've been in this place. I've seen these things. I've worked with these people. "I'm an expert."

James : As soon as that lady figures something out. "That's it now you've confused everyone"

maleyk : "Anderson I understand you are a specialist of a narrow field you don't see the overall picture, but surely it's not difficult to draw seven lines"

Max Fiedler : wow i just wanted to watch some youtube after coming home but why do i feel like i'm back at work again

IronSmith : This is what happens when you hire a "businessman" and "managers" to accomplish the production of anything. Just because you can manage people doesn't mean you can produce anthing.

Todd Rainer : And this is what it feels like to be a scheduler for a major oilfield services company. Client: Can we build that product in four weeks. Scheduler (Me, Todd): No, it will take six weeks to procure the materials alone, then we need two weeks for welding, a few days for radiographic testing, at least four for coating and dryi.... Project Manager: Hold on, Todd - I think we CAN do it in Six weeks. Scheduler (Me, Todd): I haven't even talked about engineering, Chad (The PM) (*imagining what PM would look like at in the iron sights of my M-203 from my MP days and exploding when the frag grenade hit*) PM: Don't worry about it, I'm sure engineering can use a legacy design (THEY NEVER DO! NEVER! EVER! EVER!!!) Client: EXCELLENT!!!! Here's a check! (The only thing the PM really cares about as it justifies his existence) Two weeks later: Client: We need to change the product completely but we need it at the same time. PM: OF COURSE! Scheduler (Me, Todd): *Adjusting dates in Primavera ignoring our own policy that's in the contract that says that any changes restarts the clock - Imagining what both the PM and the Client would look like tied up to a chair and being interrogated by myself and Sgt. Armstrong (That's not good cop, bad cop - that's Bad Cop, WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH THIS GUY cop - I was the second one with all the knives and dental tools). *(and we had a client do that seven times before they decided on their design..... and still needed it on the same date. WHAT THE ACTUAL HELL??)

Carl Bailey : I went for an interview at that company, problem was they wanted me to start last Tuesday.

TBK : Project Manager is a Person who thinks nine women can deliver a baby in One month.

CapitalCheese : This video just raised my blood pressure. Thumbs up for the realism!

Noah McArthur : This is the point where the expert should ask, "Why do you want it this way?" Then the client usually gives an answer that tells the expert what they really want and then he can help them achieve their real goal instead of putting tons of resourses into something the client only thought they wanted. Here's an example, "Why do you want some of the lines to be drawn with green and some with transparent ink?" "Well, because we've found that our customers like things that are green and transparent." "Drawing red lines with green and transparent ink would be really difficult and we would waste a lot of resources trying to achieve such a goal. Might I recommend having all of the red lines drawn with red ink and then add some green lines to be drawn with green ink and some transparent lines to be drawn with transparent ink." "Ok, that sound sounds perfectly reasonable." Asking, "Why," doesn't always work out like this, but when it does it saves a lot of stress and resourses

Niko Nyrhila : This is pure gold, everybody should watch it at least once a year.

TVBalkan : Immediately came to this video again after this (metaphorically speaking): TODAY I HAVE MANAGED TO CONVINCE MY PRODUCT MANAGER THAT RED LINES CAN ONLY BE DRAWN WITH RED MARKER AND THEY CAN'T BE PERPENDICULAR AND PARALLEL AT THE SAME TIME!!! And he approved a budget to buy red markers, not for resupply of charcoal sticks that we had to use. I'm getting myself gloriously drunk on Friday!!!

ArgentOrangeOK : As an engineer, I eventually learned to just agree with them and then did whatever actually needed to be done- knowing they'd never even know the difference.

ChaosNe0 : Something I haven't read in the comments that far: Why not redefining the fancy words the customers THINK they use correctly? If they think lines don't have to be straight, just go with it. Explain it in the requirements documentation, let them sign it and Boom, they fucked themselves. Requirement Engineering, baby!

AriaCass :

Shawn X : Technically you can have seven lines all perpendicular among each other in a 7d dimension

TheoreticallyDan : how an asian feels in America

mission liao : After the end, everyone gets promoted, except the Expert.

Ao Chen : 5:11 perfect solution😂 The answer to idiotic requests from ignorant superiors: use their ignorance to trick them.

I'm the captain now : Basically they dont know what theyre doing and depend on people that know what theyre doing to just say yes otherwise eveyrone loses their jobs. Too many middlemen nowadays that leech from the worker.

Xiaoyinzheng Ji : You just randomly draw 7 lines and tell them that they are all perpendicular in 7-dimensional space! Using blue pen to draw red line is easy, you need to use a blue-colored pen but put red ink in it!

Kyle Li : Just draw 10 purple lines parallel to each other and call it a day

modex20 : i am a developer and this sketch triggers me

Cameron Christensen : Dang, this video stressed me out.

Potato : 2018....I watch this after every meeting, if there wasn't for this video I would kill myself long time ago

Franz Galahad : Reminds me of my previous boss who wants the performance of a Galaxy Tab S2 with live data and gave me a WIFI only Galaxy Tab 3.

kamran102 : Sounds a bit like the climate debate

Do you like my Nickname? I've made you waste 5 sec : This is not comedy, this is corporate life.

Mr Wasteed : Watching this made me nauseated.. Just like when i am around stupidity..great video.

John A : That's my boss!!! L O L ! ! !

eagle Tang : I remember one of my client told me to draw a “elegant and bright black.”

Softwine Market : The Expert's transformation into someone who believes in his own power is more frightening than any transition of a human to a zombie.

Lauris Beinerts : I can do absolutely anything!

Wayne Mitchell : I feel sorry for the poor expert here. It's like he has been locked in a room with a bunch of SJWs on the extreme left. 🤪

The Sage's Apprentice : A room full of overpaid and useless idiots with only one intelligent man in the room constantly arguing common sense solutions. Sounds like an executive meeting...

Ajan Annamalai : What I get from this is that we have overcomplicated massively the most smallest of things. Also People who know absolutely shi about subjects get In through gift of the gab

darkora : Eugh, I've been in too many conversations like this before *shudders*

gavsmith1980 : This is how educated people feel when confronted with evolution deniers and flat earthers.

Itai Eiron : He could draw three perpendicular lines on a sphere

Linda Lee : This was so good. Thank you.

Egidio Caprino : True in the software industry

ali abdullah : First time bots have suggested me a good video
