TL;DR: Clients are still dumb.

The sequel to a previous rant ...



Client IT Lead: "We've loaded your code into our website, but *this* particular part of it isn't working."

Me: "Fair enough. I'll make a fix and have it deployed."

... an hour later, my changes are deployed, and I notify the client that the fix is live ...

CIL: "Thanks for fixing that so quickly! Just a heads up, but I've noticed that some of our own code needed fixing, so I've gone ahead and made some tweaks <that will most definitely break your code>."

... another hour passes ...

CIL: "Hey, so, I don't know what happened, but that fix you pushed stopped working."
