nnee5092yCharming story, indeed.
Xamenyap8532yYour manager sounds like an ass
He was, and partly the reason for being fired.
Too many "If you want us to change application XYZ...fill out form A...submit paper copies for approval by the manager, head of the department and a vice-president. In our 1-hour process review meeting every 3 months, we'll perform a final review of all the approved suggestions and take them under advisement."
That works to discourage the 'little people' from wanting improvements in our apps, but when he told that to multiple vice-presidents, more than once...his days were numbered.
Beautiful rant! You earned yourself a subscriber, sir.
The code example is great! How can these developers even have such a job? The code is fucking ridiculous and so is their ignorant behavior. Shoot them into the sun with a rusty V2!
