There exists no problem that cannot be made much *worse* by hiding it for a week, then deleting a bunch of stuff and then going on holiday.

Sigh.

NB : No Help required just venting.

That's Charlie's Maxim No 2:

Few Problems cannot be solved by vaguely saying "Something (important) is wrong with It" and going away for 2 weeks.

When you get back the issue (if it was important enough) will have been fixed as if by magic.

You must work with some very professional people, everywhere I work, it seems to be able to wait until I come back to be fixed, even if its apparently extremely important' before I leave.

Corollary:
If you have a really serious problem, ignore it completely until someone who knows what they are doing jumps in to fix it.

After they’re done, blame them for the problem and for failing to fix it earlier.

Maybe:

Given enough scapegoats; there is no problem so big that it can't be completely ignored or run away from.

The number of scapegoats is directly proportional to the boss's fault for the problem

I usually subscribe to "Crowley's Law"
quote:
The person with the most proof of a problem will always be blamed for that problem.

where "proof" consists of Perfmon numbers, logs, error messages, and/or knowledge of the application, business, local politics, and if applicable 14th century musical fashion.

This was stated more succinctly in (what I am told is) a Japanese axiom: "The nail that sticks up, is the first to be hammered down."
