Logic states that if you know the problem its a good start for you to figure out the solution. Unfortunately, dark manager's want the solution immediately.
My personal pet peeve is when any attempts in explaining the root cause is often interrupted with a stern...
"I don't care, I want the solution!"
Which the subordinate will immediately reply,
"I'm sorry, but we don't have one"
In which the Dark Manager will ask, "Why..?"
and the routine rotates itself ad infinitum because he/she will just interrupt the engineer anyway... this chicken an egg solution is further exacerbated when the Dark Manager pops up behind the engineer every 5 mins, and yells...
"What's the problem? Is the server up yet!?"
