Angry Client: All the data from this account is missing. I can't work like this with the app loosing data.

Me: Checks logs, see that client pressed the reset all data button and after that the confirmation button.

Me: As polite as possible informing the client what he did.

Client: Ooh yeah I did that.

It's sad that it has come to the point where you need logs on pressing buttons because they try to blame everything on the app.

    It's 10 percent crap
    20 percent cringe
    15 percent concentrated power of feel
    5 percent reason
    And 50 percent lame
    And 100 percent reason to punch you in the face

    *every stupid client meeting*

    Never thought of it, note taken for future projects 🙏
    Better log those keys than being sorry

    The amazing part of this is that when confronted with evidence they admitted fault instead of saying you doctored the logs

    @jbhelfrich every movie ever tells the humans that they can trust the logs, as "that's how they catch the Hackers!!"

    @MisterArie I have kept soft delete as an option in few of my apps. Never a hard delete. And actually it's not logging the buttons but logging the purging as all purge should be logged for the sins they had committed.

    The client has committed a sin, as proved by purged deeds. 😂

    @eatPrayCode they want hard delete's because of privacy concerns.

    But well their choice, I just making sure I'm not responsible for any lost data.
