As QA, I don't do a lot of what's called Pair Programming every day. Sometimes, I'll do some ad hoc pairing with either a Developer or another QA to share knowledge, troubleshoot or just to show them something or have them show me something. But there isn't the same expectation as Dev does to always pair with someone.
I'm telling you, it's like being lost on a roadtrip with My Husband.
My end of it goes like this:
Why don't you right-click instead?
Okay, go that way.
No, you missed it.
The other one... No, one more over... Scroll up... No, up... UP!! ... Yeah, that one.
It's not going to work, just go back and right-click.
Yes, it will.
DON'T ARGUE WITH ME, JUST GET ON THAT KEYBOARD AND MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!!
Do you get the feeling we're doing this paired development thing all wrong? And by "we", I mean "you"...
