Discussion on: What are your biggest problems with unit testing?

When I hired a contractor to do my front stairs, the contract he provided me with did not specifically include the time he will take to do the necessary measurements. It is always assumed, whenever we are building anything, that we must take the time to measure everything first.

So there is no need to explicitly state in your agreement/contract that you need extra time for writing unit tests (i.e. for measuring before you cut). Anyone who complains about a craftsman spending some time measuring is quite clueless, i.e. as you say, we should refuse to do business with such foolish 'customers'.
