How do you tolerate a colleague who

- Fails to work as a team member, is inherently lazy and writes software that is simply horrendous
- Blatantly takes the easy road and even admits to it
- Has no sense of pride in the work they do
- Is your supervisor

    Hey, are you my junior?

    @yellow-dog I wish I was a junior developer that way I could be dogmatic and self righteous.

    In this instance I know I’m the one who’s right.

    I would just avoid working with them.

    Code yourself out. ;-)

    In my experience, they'll spend the time they saved by half-assing their work politicking, eventually get into management, defund your initiatives and fire you.

    Fire them, remove them politically, or if those fail: fix their brakes.

    @whiskey0 welcome to the software development. 10 years into it, every single time i change project and team i find out few months later that omg what a shitshow it is. Fix the most critical problems and move on. At this point i dont care anymore, i do my work as good as i can, accept tge fact I can't heal the world and go home after my part is done. Enjoy the road and ride!

    @Avimelekh I had a feeling that was the case, good to know I’m not the only one out there

    I was in a similar situation with a boss who was lazy and had no idea what he was doing and was blatantly adamant about it.

    @Avimelekh Thu, this website. The world has no idea how capable ranters we are as developers, and just how much to rant about.

    You got me nailed until the supervisor part.
