Today I messaged my CTO 👩‍💻 ,
"If you were a repo, I'd commit to you everyday"
and didn't get a reply. What will happen tomorrow ?

    I bet your commit message was cringe and that lead to a merge conflict

    > What will happen tomorrow?

    Your CTO? Nothing.

    <thought bubble over his/her head>: "Repo? What's that? Must be some nerd-speak that looser is asking for help with. Better not respond and hope he gets help from someone else. Yea...I'm awesome."

    Best case, CTO will want to merge with you.
    Worst case, you'll be in detached HEAD state.

    Usally protocol in such case is that CTO will call hr and then HR will contact you and ask you to sign up for POSH training ( prevention of sexual harassment)

    Failing to comply and repetitive behavior may lead to termination of contract

    Also you will be black-listed by corporates so good luck getting a new job.

    @cafebabe probably a website or spreadsheet or something that let's people now about potential hires?

    @cafebabe during background check HR might contact the previous employer, sometimes things gets cleared then and there.
    It only happens in corporates, i am not sure exactly how they do this on larger scale
    I suppose those job portal that we apply to still have our details and sometimes portals are shared between corporates

    @ScribeOfGoD Ooh! "Spreadsheets", nice! Everyone knows HR like element spreadsheets.

    That’s straight up harassment

    If this were any decent sized company your CTO would have a secretary to read these mails and you'd either get a reply asking wtf that means or it would go into spam and no one would give a shit.
