Marketing: it's not working...

Me: *fixes bug and pushes changes in less than 5 mins*

Me: Well it's working for me

Marketing: strange... it wasn't working 5 minutes ago...

I love their faces of confusion haha

    I have done the same early in the products lifetime sometimes while they where in the phone.

    Back then it was an asp/vbscript application so you could make changes directly on the server.

    And since the application was just a year old there where lots of easy to fix edge cases to fix.

    Later it got harder unless it was just a data error in the db

    The disadvantage is that it lowers the trust in your product when it seems to have failed for no reason. It creates the impression that you have non-reproducible bugs, and these are the worst.

    That's why you should say that you fixed it.

    @Fast-Nop exactly why I no longer does it :)

    As @Fast-nop points out. It may make you feel smug at the time, but it's an incredibly rookie error

    This has gotten people fired before. Don't do this.

    It's funny how everyone in the comments are like "you crazy don't do this" yet it's getting so many likes. As if everyone who does this is too embarrassed to comment 😂

    Yeah I know it's a very bad idea, but I was so fucking tired that day I just wanted a laugh

    @eo2875 every one would like to do it ;)

    But not every one can or will do it.

    I used to do this.
    We have a saying that roughly translates to
    - For things to work, you need to be willing to work.
    I always said that to their face, and it sounds much better in my language, but this will work too.
