I think a subtitle to "devRant" might be "Competitive Swearing for People Who Sometimes Write Code". It really does feel like that sometimes.
@kp15 I've said it up there, there's a few solutions between telling everyone to fuck off and pouting in the corner. Find the right language, present your side, stand up! I did it a couple of times myself, it makes your work environment more pleasurable. People respect a strong person. Being weak because you have a few bills isn't really a life worth living.
@kp15 I don't feel I'm generalising. I'm targeting a specific group of devRanters, with a concrete, yet flexible advice.
Not everyone will react to the same situation the same, but a clear pattern has emerged here:
- Someone was mean to me
- I CURSE IN ALL CAPS
- That's what I should have said
- Instead I ran away
It became around 40% of rants here... Yeah, grow a pair!
moort44175yDON'T TELL ME WHAT TO DO.
There I told you.
@moortuvivens Good for you!
@sljux Excuse me but just because this works for you, doesn't mean it works for everyone and not doing that doesn't make you 'weak' right away.
I personally can't stand racism and seeing people being treated like crap so yeah when I see that I react.
But when it comes to work, right now I've got this job to have enough to live off and pay the bills. I'm already below the norms over here and its very simple, if it keeps going like this, they might fire me. I've been applying for jobs for a while now and still nothing else than this so I quite fancy keeping my current job for now.
Some people aren't good in things like that. I can't fucking help that I'm not good at it! Although its getting better and better, when I got a visit from the manager today (he's a nice guy though) about my norms, my heart was still in my throat for a fucking hour.
Sorry but I just can't do that shit, I just can't.
