Tester Vs Developer

QA Tester (Krishna)
Developer (Rama)

Krishna: Hey Ram, there is a bug in your code. Type a text in username text box and press enter. Beep sound doesn't appear.
Rama: How can that be a bug? There is no requirement that beep sound should come. Anyway, I will assign it to offshore and get it fixed.

After 2 days,
Rama: Krishna, bug is fixed. Please verify.

After another 2 days,
Krishna: I have re-opened the bug because sound is not coming in some PCs. Sound is coming in my machine, but my colleague Raja is not getting the sound.

After another 2 days,
Ram: Not a bug. I observed that your friend Raja has Old IBM machine. Unlike your DELL machine, IBM machines do not have inbuilt speakers. So, to hear the sound in Raja's machine, please use head phones and then get the bug closed soon.

Another 2 days,
Krishna: I have re-opened the bug because sound tone is Different across different machines. Sound is coming as 'BEEP' in my machine, but My colleague Raja, who is having IBM machine is getting the sound as 'TONG'.
Ram: Not a bug. Get lost man. What can we do for the bug? The Two machines are built in such a way that they produce different sounds. Do You expect the developers to rebuild the IBM processors to make them uniform? Please close it.

Another 2 days,
Krishna: I have re-opened the bug because intensity of beep Sound produced on 2 different DELL machines is different. My machine produces Beep sound of intensity 10 decibels whereas my friend's machine produces Sound worth 20 decibels. Fix your code to make the sound uniform across all machines.

Another 2 days later,
Ram: Once again it is not a bug. I have noticed that the Volume set is different on the two machines. Ensure that volume is same in both The machines before I get mad and then close the bug.

Another 2 days,
Krshna: I have re-opened the bug.
RAm: What ?? Why? What more stupid reasons can be there for re-opening?
Krishna: Sound intensity is different for machines placed at different locations (different buildings). So, I have re-opened it.

After 2 days,
Ram: I have made some scientists do an acoustical analysis of the two buildings you used for testing. They have observed that the acoustics in the two buildings varies to a large extent. That is why sound intensity is different across the 2 buildings. So, I beg you to please close the bugs.

After 1 year
Krishna: I am re-opeing the bug. During the year, I requested The clients to arrange architects to build two buildings with same Acoustical features, so that I can test it again. Now, when I tested, I found that intensity of sound still varying. So, I am re-opening the defect.
Ram: GROWLLLL.....I am really mad now. I am sure that the Sound waves of the two buildings are getting distorted due to some background noice or something. Now I need to waste time to prove that it is because of background noice.
Krishna: No need for that. We will put the machines and run them in vacuum and see.
Ram: ??
Ram is now in mental asylum while Krishna has become QA Manager.
