"no micro managing here!"

*Boss comes in at 5*
- how much work have you done?
- why isn't this finished yet?
- you're working too slow
- show me git status
- show me git log
- why is this taking you so long?

    I'm trying but jobs in this part of the country are sparse unfortunately :/

    @Hevlastka why where are you? Your boss really comes and checks your git status every day?

    Yeah pretty much. It's a joke though, they're expecting me to build a fully functional e-commerce site ready to be running in production before December.
    When I say a site I mean everything from the infrastructure (redis, elasticsearch, postgres etc) to backend and frontend which isn't completely finished.

    It's been designed to be used with a frontend framework but halfway through they decided to scrap that idea. So I've got to go and redesign the fcking thing as well.

    Oh did I mention that there is a migration as well? And indexing their current stuff in elasticsearch?

    And that I'm supposed to be finished by the end of next fucking month? FML

    Aren't there loads of jobs in Leeds? I hope your charging some proper money for all that!

    Slightly above junior developer wage - I was an idiot enough to go down a grade for this shit. The job description is basically the complete opposite of what it actually is. I'm on a hunt at the moment but there isn't too many jobs here unfortunately. Shot myself in the foot by accepting this one.
