comment How to make non-technical management more realistic when it comes to developing software
It might be worth bearing in mind, that if they haven't fired you yet, they still believe you're doing a passable job. Although they might not like your estimates at all.

comment How to make non-technical management more realistic when it comes to developing software
Sometimes that happens. Typically this results in stretched out delivery dates, and possibly buggy software. If they're willing to say which ones are more important, you could prioritise your projects so the less important ones have less resources allocated to them.

comment Dealing with awful estimates
Certainly it's worrying, but he may have been pressured into giving one number. (Certain project managers insist on it.) The scope of the project could have changed, or a number of other things. Or as you say he may have given a bad estimate. Regardless there is no point burning bridges.
