    This is where your response to every "can you look at this issue?" can be "Sure, I'll look at it :)" and you won't be the one at fault.

    @AleCx04 Honestly, you guys are making me feel scared xD

    Up to now, i'm only working on one and no one mentioned the other projects (still in a safe zone). Just hope it stays like this...

    Some are older projects that, i hope, are becoming obsolete, and only a few are in actual development.

    Good part, no due dates yet.

    Bad part, when they appear, hope i can handle them...

    Play along as long as you learn.
    Search for other positions in parallel.
    Get sick on sickening.
    Eventually leave.
    Good luck.

    ah, the classic switcharoo.

    the "best" one I ever had was being accepted for a "c# unity3d hololens r&d programmer", and then on a first day being told "yeah, that'll have to wait, here's some ASP. NET intranet apps we need maintained"

    yeah, at least it was the same language, but i explicitly said several times that i'm a "multimedia programmer looking for multimedia programming position, since i'm bored and depressed by all the intranet website cr...uft."
