I'm working with the guy that's the design/implementation manager (or some such title) for the new roll out of the dispatching program we use at work.

I started as a beta tester for this new system, and he's been working with me over the past two weeks on getting reporting and downloads from his system into my own database to work with each other. It works well, because I get my data and he gets reports from me about issues I run into, which being OCD and trying to make two sets of data match perfectly means I seem to inadvertently run into ALL the issues.

This one in particular was quite fun:

ERROR: operator does not exist: character varying + unknown

I copy/pasted it into an email to him with the comment:
"I know MY character can be varying and unknown, but sheesh, does the report have to point that out to me? lol"

I really hope I'm more of source of amusement for him and his co-workers than a poking thorn in the side, seeing as I'm reporting something almost daily.

Incidentally, his last name is Robinson, so it's constantly taking everything in my power not to say, "Danger, Will Robinson! Danger!" at any point during our emails. I feel certain that any person with last name Robinson no longer thinks of that as a funny joke.
