cors26104ythat's low, even for an abusive, profit fetishist, capitalist 21. century company. apperantly they got what they deserved when they lost their clients.
Raghnaid3304yYou know, judging by the character of this ex-client, it almost sounds like the previous programmer set up a trap to screw them up.
Regardless if that was the case or not, none of this was your fault. Good grief.
solecki624yWhat a cunt. I don't have much patience with people who can't admit to being wrong in the light of evidence, especially when they're being an ass about it. Self-deception is truly something fascinating and tragicomic to witness. Glad it turned out it wasn't your fault.

Its a good thing you documented everything you did! Its like your boss had a former employee that left a time-bomb when he left. Instead of taking the blame for it or having to pay for it he just pointed the finger. He prolly wasnt expecting his replacement to cover their ass so well. Or it could of been a mistake and he still didnt wanna admit it. Either way I see this kind of thing happen a lot when; old people, bosses, management try to use young people, interns, new employees as scape goats for most or all of their issues. Some ppl like to exploit unexperienced ppl to attempt to get free work out of them or maybe they dont want help even though they need it or got stuck with it.
The only real defense if you are in this situation(IMO) is to document everything! Sometimes that isn't even enough!
To management please keep in mind we all gotta start somewhere. We all have our own problems too. If you hate new people and don't like change please retire and go fys!
Damn, that was a good story. Bad guys got what they deserved and you got to tell them off, unscathed. Very good!
I can imagine that horror night and finally the climax revealed in the series of emails. OMG !!!
And the best part is that you never gave up accepting you did it and this thought helped you swim to the shore. This one thought is sacred , worship it .
