# TL;DR age != competence My boss is a fucking computer illiterate self taught programmer. Don't get me wrong, he can do shit, pretty shitty but it gets done... But the dude has 38 fucking years old and somehow still searches for keys on the fucking keyboard and struggles to touch type anything... I sometimes crying the fuck out when I have to help him with something... I'm having a mini fucking panic attack right now just thinking of it... Fuck He is our "manager" but doesn't even have the fucking balls to confront his own subordinates when they need to be confronted... Everyone is aware of this and everyone is fucking around... And no one sees any consequences... I wonder why deadlines are always missed... He is so passive that every fucking thing someone asks he goes and says it is OK... I was studying same psychology about ignorance and I think he lacks the understanding that shit is hard to do... We literary had a conversation the other day something like that: Boss: so, what do you think? One call to the api for it to return all data or multiple calls to return smaller ones? Me: well... It takes ~180ms just for latency to the server for one call, if you have 10 calls it will take 180*10ms, it is better if we have one call and cache it if necessary on the backend. ( he has no fucking clue wtf caching is, besides browser cache) Boss: (looking confuse AS FUCK!!) Well, I don't get it... Maybe I'll test it later. Me thinking: test how you dumb motherfucker? On you fucking workstation with no fucking latency? There is no fucking test. I'm stating it. IT IS A FUCKING FACT! Me: well, it takes that for the call to go to the api and come back , its simple math. 1 == 180, 10 == 1800. Suit yourself.

Well, the 10 calls don't have to be done sequentially though, so your 180*10 math is not necessarily right I think

Fucking sweeping generalisations, you can’t base someones competence on their age FFS.
