On the plus side, no one could ever accuse my boss of not being clear about what he wants from me.
On the minus side, he wants an update and I'm not done as much as I wanted.
In the long term I think I'm well off, but right now...FML.
Update: predictably, I was totally overreacting and I apparently know what I'm doing (mostly). Onward! Added 'whine' tag because this merits it.
