I just noticed, it seems no one rants much about their work or work mates anymore... Or ever?

Guess I missed the notice...

    Well sometimes I rant about my boss, but I don't have any other dev as "work mate", so...

    @ZioCain my problem is with workmates. Boss is good, gives me projects but lets me decide how I do them.

    WFH reduces both contact and annoyance. Also, I only work short time with three days per week. All hail corona!

    I used to rant about my boss and workmates all the time. But since I moved company I actually love them all 😂

    You probably missed the memo, there's a pandemic going on that reduces annoyances due to working from home

    I have stories. The problem? Can't be specific right now. Company reallllly does not like "story telling" employees.

    When I'm out of there, I will write some rants.

    @magicMirror Are you OK? Should I call the cops? Are they watching you? 👀

    Talk about croissants if you can't talk

    @alexbrooklyn I'm fine all is good! (and to the person reading this, tell HR I said Hi!)

    srsly now:
    It is something in the contract - with covid19, I don't want to give them excuses right now. At least until I'm ready.

    @billgates same here, it's just that sometimes he just wants to understand the projects and he's not even a dev and can't properly code in php or js which are our main languages...
    but now some projects are in typescript or C#, so...

    My colleagues are pretty nice. Except for some miscommunication here and there I don't feel like I need to rant about work currently.

    My work has gotten both better and more sensitive. I can’t rant about the code with out a lot of abstraction. I could rant about my coworkers but they are all genuinely good people trying their best.

    It's hard to rant about your boss or colleagues when there's hardly anything wrong about them. I could say a word or two about our junior dev, but rarely there's anything really rantworthy. Maybe I should rant about our CEO though, they've been pissing me off lately...

    • My work is mind-numbingly boring.
    • My coworkers don’t talk to me; I don’t talk to them.
    • The code is convoluted enough that I can’t tell if it’s bad or I just don’t understand its complexities yet.
    • Don’t get me wrong, there are problems, but they’re dwarfed by the sheer number of things I don’t understand yet.
    • The pay is nice.

    So, rant-worthy content is pretty rare there.

    However, I don’t have a home office and must work around a strong-willed 4yo, a talkative 1yo, a girlfriend who doesn’t entertain them enough, and her dad who is absolutely oblivious to when he’s being annoyingly talkative and time waste-y.

    So that’s the focus of basically all of my rants lately.
