Code Ants

We all know about the term 'Code Monkey' which refers to junior developers... Well, I'm calling my ants 'Code Ants'!

Anyway, slight problem with them - I put hand cream on the edge of their tupperware home, so that if they tried to venture out, they would think twice and wouldn't drown. Sadly, the cream has dried out, and more and more are going over the edge, losing grip and drowning!

Lessons Learned for Project Management:

Don't allow your code ants boundaries to become unclear! Give them the slightest opportunity to get off the project, they will take it, even at the cost of their own life. Keep reinforcing their boundaries so they know their place.
