Karma Story

2 motherfuckers that were absolute shit as managers applied for a position for the web tech manager at my institution. I was the one that Xed both their applications.

Now, I didn't do it out of pettiness, I did it because both of these assholes lied about their positions, responsibilities and knowledge.
One of them washed his hands on a project stating that he had no knowledge of web development, but stated on his resume that he was working as a web dev at the time(in node and asp.net) as well as angular frontends <--- fking bullshit

The other stated that he has been coding all his life. Yeah shitbag, that is why you were selling phones at a company and when i mentioned to you that i studied comp sci you said that it sounds interesting but you had no idea what development is or how computers even work.

There were many. Might say fuck it and just take the position for myself. Shit got funny af and it is amazing how being a shit person and a liar will get back to you and bite you in the ass.

Fuck them

    I really don't understand why people lie, especially about stuff that is easily verified. It just makes things worse for them.

    @RantSomeWhere @RememberMe because they are full of shit and expect everywhere to be the same man. It sucks

    I think in the world of web dev half the people that to want to hire you don't really seem to understand the job themselves so I would venture to guess that after being turned down the 112th time for not being a 10x react/angular/superdeva something snaps and you go full metal on your resume.

    And thats 112 jobs applied for, not to count 315 jobs you watch go by that you don't even take a shot at for feeling under qualified. Eventually you realize that your most likely never going to really feel qualified for anything so you decide to just start testing the waters hoping to discover that you do in fact know how to swim.

    @M1sf3t not me. I apply everywhere thinking i am Me Big Shot

    Normally if i jump ship is cuz someone offered me more money. I don't really look for jobs. They sorta kinda get offered to me one way or the other.

    @AleCx04 I did that as mechanic for a while, I had been around machinery long enough that even if it was a system I wasn't entirely familiar with, I could bullshit my way around long enough to pick it up and no one notice.

    Its the opposite with computers tho. It seems I'm forever realizing I know how to work with things that I didn't think I had a clue about and I can't spend ten minutes in a conversation about even the simplest of processes and not say "oh, you mean that thingy" at least twice 🤦🏻‍♂️

    How do you dev without knowing how a computer works? Like what did they say to make you think they know nothing about the topic? I am curious what that ignorance sounds like when someone is bullshitting you.

    @M1sf3t This is kind of how I take on new things in computer field. I know enough to get started and just learn the rest fast. There is now so much stored there that I can generalize to extrapolate what I need when and where. But honestly, there have been times when I spouted shit outa my mouth that was correct, but had no idea where it came from.

    @Demolishun It's a quick way to learn, it just becomes problematic when you have to explain what your doing to someone else.

    Thankfully most interviewers aren't all that knowledgeable about what they're hiring for and as long as you keep what you say just over there head, they're easy to bullshit. Otherwise I'd have a lot harder time finding a job in any field.

    @Demolishun seems really out of it right? The second dude saw me working on school work one time. I mas making a rest API in Java and Spark(the microframework) and he saw what I was doing and started asking me about it, stating that he knew of the existence of programming as a field and as a concept, but he did not know anything about it cuz he just wasn't interested in it because he is scared of how computers work and getting into the field. He did have a major and a graduate degree, but these were in Business Administration and he had never worked in any computer related field. He stated on his resumee that he was tasked with operating client databases and adding to the software that they used at the phone company where he worked. Phone company as in MetroPCS. It was complete and utter bullshit because the software came from corporate. Why would a store assistant manager be able to interact with client databases?

    rule #1 of bullshitting on your resume:

    You don't talk about the things the bull shitted on...

    @M1sf3t exactly man. Not gonna lie my blood boiled when I read it and i tried to not be biased about it. I did mention to the head of the department that if they felt that i was being too harsh then i would gladly step out and he said that my input on that specifically was very valued and that he wants me to go through the whole process. Made my day

    @AleCx04 I think sometimes when people, especially "professionals", think of grad students they focus to much on the student part and not on the fact that you've already got you bachelor's. He was probably trying to pick your brain a little thinking it would help him get his footing without tipping to his had to any of his employers.

    Most other professions this wouldn't have been that big of a deal because generally your working alone one way or the other, but with developing software, even if it's just a large webpage, your eventually going to have to work with other people and in doing so your typically going to make them look just as bad as yourself if they don't bother to mention to anyone about what a shitshow you are.
