Manager: Hey how come you left so many comments on my PR?

Dev: Well you’ve just recently learned how to code so there’s going to be a lot of things to learn beyond what you’ve picked up in your online coding tutorials. Don’t worry it’s only minor things like you put everything all in one function, left outdated comments in the code, have if statements 4 levels deep, have a console.log after every line of code some of which log .env variables, skipped error handling, cast to “any” a bunch instead of using more specific types, didn’t write any tests and some unrelated tests are now failing due to a circular dependancy.

Manager: THAT IS SO DISRESPECTFUL!!APPROVE MY PR IMMEDIATELY. IT WASN’T EVEN EASY FOR ME TO CREATE THE PR, NOW I HAVE TO MAKE AN UPDATE!? YOU’RE THE DEV, YOU SHOULD FIX IT NOT ME!! NEVER COMMENT ON ANY OF MY PRS AGAIN.

    Why on earth is your manager, who can't code, making PRs in the first place?!

    "Hey, it wasn't easy for me to perform open heart surgery on this guy with no training, it's disrespectful to me to say I killed him! You're the surgeon, now you fix him!"

    I wonder if some companies send their future management to some kind of Management Training led by Dilbert's company...

    @AlmondSauce He wants to learn to code but is unwilling to feel the pain

    @boombodies Then tell him to go to university, coding bootcamp or take a coding course on Pluralsight or something.

    Seriously, I'd be insulted that he thought he could just "learn to code" by forcibly polluting the codebase with his shite. Took me many, many years to get to the point I am now, taking criticism from those who knew better on the chin time after time - and he thinks he's smart enough that he can just waltz in and code to the same level in 5 minutes? Piss off.

    Everything in one function, Great the guy must have thought that function could act/turn into a class if everything went under it.
