They're always like six times higher than the real ones.

*Having* to keep up with new shit. Some of which will die out, but some of which will stick around, so in order to not become a senior dev being ranted about on here, we need to keep learning. Sometimes we need a break though, and after two weeks, there's already three new shits out that you need to at least have heard of.

Designers who think they know how to code.
Root5802665d@theMaintainer Dealing with that one right now.
* The controller action is in the wrong controller.
* The syntax is ancient, redundant, and (nitpick) in the wrong order.
* The view doesn't define a Rails form, just a form tag with some controls.
* The controls don't have proper names
* There is no model
* There is no database table at all to store the user response
* The css is in the wrong stylesheet
* Hardcoded options
* Hardcoded contact information

- a bad development pipeline which requires you to remember arbitrary details
- APIs that are acting different from their documentation (with a goddamn wrong WSDL)
- unreasonable deadlines
- being interrupted while in the zone
- pointless meetings
- working on boring/unfulfilling projects
