Client: Extend string size for that URL field. I have to input a really large URL in there.

Me: Please show me the URL first.

Client: Here it is //randomurl.com/random-route/15363783?i=jfjfjfjjfjfjhf&shit=jfjfjkfkfkgjfjjhh74747jdjh&you=kfjfjbhgg779hdhhd&not=jfjhdh63737#fuckingKiddingMe

Me: You can leave the whole part after the question mark. Insert it like //randomurl.com/random-route/15363783

Client: Ok, great. Thanks.


Me later checking the data inserted:

    You never know, they may have actually double checked and actively decided they only needed the first part, without the id.

    Pain of laughter! Anyway, when are people going to realize we don't live in the 2000's anymore? Every educated web developer knows that the key-value pair model in the query string has long been replaced by RESTful URLs. This is the most basic thing ever. How can a guy not know this.. oh wait, he's the client. Hehehe.

    @CaptainRant I wasn't ranting about her not understanding key value pairs in the URL.

    "How can a guy not know this"

    General computing knowledge doesn't always include your niche expertise. Just because it is a popular trend does not mean it is an unwavering standard.

    @Demolishun REST is known to both backend and frontend developers, as well as it being general computer knowledge taught at every university's Computer Science 101.
