Most of my life is spent answering other people's questions.

So much so, that I have tasks assigned at the moment to create a simple micro service (http get, RPC then DB call & return a simple model). If I had dedicated time, including 100% test coverage, that's two days of work. At worst.

I told PMO to expect 4 weeks, and if they're bringing snacks for me daily, they might get it in 3 weeks. Unfortunately, the PMO estimate is genuinely my considered thoughts on delivery time.
