So I have this friend, let's call him retard. He decided to check out a coding competition. He signed up for it and then added me as a teammate. Then he went ahead and gave me a time, 22:00 local time. The time when the competition starts. I was excited, and being super retard didn't even think of rechecking things myself.
We waited in our merry ways, all so excited for a coding competition while listening to music to keep the mind free. The time finally came. It was 21:59. I opened up my ide and called upon my dear friend chrome. Asked the retard for the link. And then he decided to break out the curses. I was shocked, bewildered.
I didn't know what was going on, did I do something bad to him? Did I make him angry? Or did something happen to him? I was worried. After all, I don't want my teammate to be distressed during a competition. So in a stern voice I said, calm down my friend. Tell me the thing that's got you all riled up.
The news he conveyed shook my very foundations of trust and the feeling of comradry that we had built the day before going to lunch and discussing strategies. That bloody retard misread 20:00 as 22:00. Two whole hours. Two whole hours that could have been used for solving simple problems and making pretty algorithms were all gone and all that was left was the dust of other competitors who weren't retards and managed to read the time correctly.
Idk what to do. Should I kill him? Delete his github profile while he isn't looking? Ask him to kindly delete System32 folder from his C:/ drive?
But then again I should also take half the blame for not taking things seriously enough to make a bloody checkup on the fake news he provided.

    Reminds me of the time when our team was one person extra due to some mistake in our coordinator understanding team size rules..

    So, how did we decide which member gets the boot, the least talented perhaps..

    No, we tossed a coin.

    So I got to watch on the sidelines, as my former team mates lost..

    Reminds me of my first college entrance day.

    Too many applications..

    How do we decide !

    We pull names from a hat at random..

    Yep, you can guess, I didn't get a place !

    Story of my life..

    You know when someone wins on the lottery, and they are that lucky.

    Well, someone has to be equally as unlucky someplace else..

    Hopefully I've found the solution, track down the luckiest place on Earth and move there. :-)

    Place reminds me of Lost..

    I picked up a job here, now where is the girlfriend !

    I guess one soon learns in life to micro-manage everyone else.
