Oh boy yes... If it close to something you do... It is something you do.

Wait, so if I understand correctly, he want you to add new fields to a database for an application that isn't built to handle them?

Well, I don't work in the field, but from my usual browsing, the answer to that is something along "Yes, and laughing out loud is the usual answer"

Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but there must be database experts and android ones around you too. So why did he ask the javascript guy to do it? Got laughed at by everyone else?

The original developer was fired as far as I know. I don't have to add more fields, just insert new data from some doc documents. But the data in the docs is just a bunch of names. How am I suppose to know what goes in the other columns like category, or the type? I don't know if I should change career or just company at this point.

Nice...

I'm not sure what would be the best answer here : ask in writing the necessary ( and probably inexistant ) database documentation as an excuse to avoid doing the job ( as "can't do the job without proper documentation" ) or to simply creatively botch the job while technically still complete it...

Probably the first, the second would most likely be seen as an excuse to be fired for incompetence...

So, ask for the database's documentation and start job hunting?
