    in a previous job when we were implementing notifications i warned the lead dev the way they were doing it was gonna bug if the user had multiple devices. i wonder how long that one took to blow up in their faces

    This seems like a pretty sensible default stance unless you're writing hard real-time systems for e.g. flight control systems or medical devices.

    @sleazyboi Let's politely disagree on this one. :-)

    For context: I spent the past 15 years working at or contracting for early-stage (pre-seed to Series A/B) startups and for most of them, ignoring the things described in the OP (bugs that will almost never happen) is generally a better way to spend their time and money.
