Manager: Write a function to get tomorrow's date.

Kids:

int getTomorrowsDate() {
return getCurrentDate() + 1;
}

Legends:

int getTomorrowsDate() {
sleep(1000*60*60*24);
return getCurrentDate();
}

    But when the function finally returns the date, it isn't the date of tomorrow anymore but the date of today, is it?🤔🤔

    (Legendary function)

    Yesterday's date is a proper mind bender!

    @Johnnyrook Simple, pass a negative integer to sleep, then the function will execute before you write the code.

    Am I doing this right?

    int getTomorrowsDate(int isItTomorrowYet = 0) {
    if (isItTomorrowYet < 1000*60*60*24) {
    sleep(1);
    return getTomorrowsDate(++isItTomorrowYet);
    } else {
    return getCurrentDate();
    }
    }

    You forgot the sleep(-1000*60*60*24*) to return to where you started.

    If you were a real Dev , you would procrastinate the work till tomorrow and display “today’s “ date 😂

    @kolaente Well he never said it had to be a quick function.

    @Ranguna Exactly, "but why?". The joke in this rant is about roundabout ways to do simple things. I just tried to amplify that.

    Me:

    int getTommorowsDate() {
    return getHotGirlsPhoneNumber();

    @Shodan let's just assume the stack is big enough! ;) #pushtoproduction
