Work grumble

Them : I have this problem, do this thing to fix.

Me: but this thing will not fix.  I suggest that thing instead.

Them: Please do this thing.

Me: but this thing will not fix.  See that thing that will fix!!  (begins to work on fix)

Them: I don't understand why doing this thing is a problem!!!

Me: it's not a problem.  I will do it, I promise*.  But it's not a fix for that problem.  I have made a fix for that problem.  I thought you'd prefer me to explain why doing the thing would not help in this situation.

Am currently gloomily awaiting grumpy response saying : DO THIS THING!!!!!!!!!!

*though not quickly because the thing is in this case, a PITA and will have zero impact on anything, being designed for a whole other scenario that simply does not apply here.
