First of all, this is a true story that I have not changed at all. It’s less of a fight and more of a total beatdown. happened about 7 years ago.
Super late coding session, we had been there for well over 16 hours and it was about noon the next day, and I offered to go out and get us all McDonald’s for lunch. Because that’s what you do when the all nighter turns in to a two-day’er
So I take this guys order, and he wants a double quarter pounder with NO CHEESE. He repeated himself like three times. Crystal clear to me. So I write it down. Got it, no cheese.
I drive over to McDonald’s and I place our eight orders in. This guy is a little funny so I took extra care to he explicit with the person taking my order that there was to be no cheese on this burger. They said ok.
So I picked up our orders, and drove them back. As we are opening them to see what they are and handing them out a growing sense of dread is starting to envelope me. The guy is getting impatient. “Where’s mine?” I know that this burger without cheese is the only thing that stands between me and cataclysmic Armageddon. We get to the last one, no joke and I hand this one to him.
He walks away and I go back to work. After about two minutes, I hear this guy shout “I SAID NO CHEESE!!!” and I hear him run up behind me and then he bludgeoned me over the head with his laptop with all his body weight. He hit me so hard it almost broke my neck, seriously I’ve never felt anything like it. Whiplashed my head forward like a mannequin in a car accident. I swear in the name of all that is holy this happened. Almost blacked me out clean. I was so dumb struck and my vision was swimming, I didn’t even think to fight back, I just ran for it, out of the building, this guy tailing me brandishing his laptop, all the way screaming “NO CHEESE!!”
It took the team half an hour and another run to mcdonalds to get a burger without cheese to calm this guy down. I’m thinking the next guy who went probably supervised the making of that burger knowing what was at stake here. Once he had a burger without cheese though he was fine like it never happened.
Some engineers are fucking crazy guys.
Don’t know if you picked up but the guy obviously never had been quite right, I didn’t feel good about fighting back. It just wasn’t the right thing to do. If you knew him you’d understand. And our team needed this guy, very talented.
I never made the mistake of buying everybody lunch again.50
I’ve been a huge fan of pretty much every blizzard franchise for a long long time.
However recently the companies attitude towards its customers has reached breaking point, insert “you think you do but you don’t “ & “don’t you guys have phones?”.
They’re unfortunately driving many of their franchises into the ground at the moment and at their current trajectory I can see a really bad fall coming.
A lot of gaming companies need to really listen to their communities and stop this micro transaction Armageddon that’s happening just now.11
To all the Java Teams that died during the fucking Mobile Civil War, We salute you!

Darkest client description.
With a gift since birth, if you answer this riddle: Who I be?
The fetus of a demon,
Semen from the tip.
Of the penis I'm the only thing
That you see when you're dreaming,
Armageddon and aftermath
This may blog in paragraphs.
Sit on a throne, full of X's and bones
Blowing smoke and I laugh.
Turning sinners like you,
Into my personal acid tabs.
Let me put you up on game,
I've been shot, burned, and stabbed, and still ain't deceased,
I carry the mark of the beast
Now can you tell me
Who the fuck I be?
Client, as the guyreplies
Wine, red wine was the color of his eyes
Coughing a lot of blood like Piru, but he slowly dies
As his eyes close shut, in prison was his eternal life
Realisation of the client being devil.2
Recently we created a Slack team with co-workers and our boss. Everybody was shocked when we saw his username. It is "armageddon". Like a fucking gamer child.2

Fucking this fucking fuck fuck! FUCK. You deal with this idiots, i fucking QUIT bitch bye.4
