To all those people that have Git alliases like:
"gc" = "git clone" or "ga" = "git add"

What do you do with all that extra saved time?

    It's just for convenience. It's NOT done to save time. Adding such shortened comnands will reduce the keystroke error probability and the need to retype when there's an error.

    I make fun of people that whine against those using aliases.

    @Jilano best answer, lol

    I use the extra time to alias even more, until I start aliasing my aliases, and so on. I am now close to the point where I only type in 'g' and my system starts programming for me.

    It helps to retain my concentration, which is nice.

    `git commit -m`
    vs
    `gcm`

    `git add --patch`
    vs
    `gap`

    `git push staging qa:master`
    vs
    `gpqa`

    I can spend more time focusing on my work than typing the same lengthy commands over and over again.

    Kind of like teaching a 3yo what "launch minecraft" means instead of saying "double click on the dirt, click beside the triangle, wait, wait, keep waiting, ... now click the top button, click the triangle. Wait. Wait. Okay, now you can play"

    I used to have `got` and `gut` due to lack on typing skill. Improved with GNU Typist. =D

    But if you mean it unironically, then may god have mercy on your soul.
