They're not mine, but read it somewhere :

Top Ten DBA Excuses1. It depends.
2. RTFM
3. “Did you fill out the form?”
4. “I’m busy.”
5. “It’s working as designed – leave me alone.”
6. IBM says…
7. You couldn’t possibly understand why…
8. “That’s what they said in class.”
9. “Our standards say we do it this way.”
10. “Because I’m the DBA, that’s why!”


Top Ten Programmer Excuses
1. “There’s something wrong with DB2!”
2. “But I copied that from another program.”
3. “It worked yesterday.”
4. “Isn’t there something you can do to make it work?”
5. “But I can do that better in C; Java; etc.”
6. “It works that way in Oracle; Access; etc.”
7. “It’s too late in the project to re-write that.”
8. “But I heard somewhere it works this way.”
9. “Why do I have to BIND every time?”
10. “DB2 is a hog.”
