Pretty sure the request from his boss included the phrase "can you just" or "all you need to do is just". That's how those types of requests start at my office.

@Athene Cunicularia Yep! I can imagine. When I started my training as software developer back in the days some colleagues gave me some "should be an easy fix" issues. Some of them turned out not to be that easy or very complicated.... So this is usually a warning indicator... ;)

The "easy fix" is closely related to the "simple project". I've had to clean up the mess on more than one occasion when some project manager gave a new guy or junior tech a "simple project" that wasn't simple at all.
