Small requirements told by a non technical owner.
Entire plan: all the customers are socially networked and website makes money but I do not know the entire technical plan.
Even if I did, there would be no design pattern that i could implement due to my skill level.
And owner does not fully understand because milestones change when deliverables are tested.
So I ask questions to experts-exchange solving the problem piece by piece and the owner is happy because all the owners milestones are being finished.
Owner and I are in same room and owner becomes curious of what I am doing as I wait for experts-exchange to create code sample that I copy and paste without fully understanding working parts of code.
I could communicate to owner that I should work at home charging less hours but this does not fit owners schedule because not every day is coding day for owner.
I could communicate to owner that my answers are copy pasted from experts-exchange but then owner may not be satisfied with hiring me.
During the waiting period, I ask for more milestones and more projects because these projects may be interconnected.
Sometimes there is only one project with no code being created in hours.
So three hours later, I am still waiting for experts-exchange with no change to show owner.
How do I get more time without saying, 'I am waiting for experts-exchange'?
