There are devs who are chill. Then there's me. Deadlines give me anxiety. Being responsible for the code I didn't write and being blamed for the bugs I inherited stress me out.

    I tend to be like that as well. And when you tell them the bug already existed you’re considered an even bigger jerk

    I’m definitely like that when it comes to doing out of hours support on a system I’ve never worked on or had any input into.
    I swear I wouldn’t sleep all night.
    No amount of money is worth it.

    But for day to day I don’t mind working on other peoples stuff. Quite happy to tell them about why the stuff didn’t work in the first place and I ask how they tested it and why they signed off on it.

    One of the things that gets better with age as a dev is to see and understand, "It is not your fault your shipping shit code". In many cases its:

    - Customer unrealistically moved up the deadline.
    - Employer over promised a solution and under cut themselves.
    - Both... 🤣
