Project managers have an easy life. Isn't that what we all complain about? This species comes with unrealistic demands. If you take a quick poll, this person must be the most hated man! In case you have already conducted a poll and come up with someone other than your project manager, I would like to meet that person. I am curious to know what that person has managed to achieve the stardom.
Having proclaimed all these, let me assure you. Being a project manager is not easy. They have personal lives too. My friend who is a project manager has an interesting story to tell me. Thanks to his present assignment, his life has been a mess with long days at work and often work spilling into the weekends. It came to a point that he had to attend calls even during his nephew's wedding. The situation is not alien to me as I have seen this happening in the past all around me.
What is the most interesting part of my friend's tale is his wife's reaction. Since he is perpetually on calls, his wife is having trouble sleeping. So she has asked him to shift to a hotel till the duration of the project. I am not sure what he has decided. Not to take calls or start looking for hotel deals.
