A senior front end developer with 8 years of experience asked me today what does 'this' refer to in a function() inside of a property in an object, and why it doesn't work outside of the function!

I wanted to shout FUCK MY LIFE! But I held myself and explained it to her.

Worst part is I still don't qualify for 'senior' in my job title (less than 3 years of experience), hence my lower pay.

    Tell your boss and use it as an example why you should be compensated more.

    Outside the function it's called "that", no wonder it didn't work for him.

    @JTBringe I don't think snitching is a good idea as it would make my team stop trusting me.

    I'm the one that gets asked technical questions by everyone in the office, which I kinda like that, the issue is that for the boss he only cares about the visuals and can't really assess the functionality, to him it either works or it doesn't
