The third of the PANOPLY series. Actually, it continues from my post “PAIR OF DEUCES, PART 4“
So, I zeroed in for the kill. This was gonna be a drop kick in my local Kangaroo Court. There was no way I was gonna lose this case. My first victory. Imagine that!
“Dad, that’s a Drop-Down button,” I corrected him sternly. Precision was more than past due in our software efforts.
“Pop-Up button,” he countered.
“Drop-Down!” I said again, loudly and more stridently. I pointed to the button on the screen, next to the Prior Art field (see my post last week for a discussion of screen elements — if you’re really interested). “We need to be more precise about our language if we are going sell this product,” I added. My turn to give the retribution: he was wrong and had it coming.
“James,” Dad shouted as he pushed back on his chair, standing, “again you show no common sense!”
‘What?!’ I asked myself. Is he going to try to humiliate me again, this time in front of Steve and Peggy? No way, I said to myself.
