Part of a banking website is broken, it has been for 2 years now..
Since I really need to use that part, I thought I would put in a formal complaint so someone might fix it..
After a few days I get an email back saying that they thought I wanted to know which browser was compatible with their banking website..
No you idiots, that isn't what I was asking, I was telling you which browsers I had used, and what the error message was in each one in turn.
So I've replied to the email, trying to explain that again in an even more idiot proof fashion I hope they can understand..
Though I thought I had written it very plainly the first time that their website was broken !9
I'm so fucking sick of this world! Money is almost 90% of all your problems. It's never enough! I work my ass off to provide for my family and I'm really good at what I do, but everyone just wants more money! Fucking government wants more taxes, the city wants more money for day care services, insurance payments (not a US citizen atleast), banks, companies.. and now we got the fucking inflation raising prices for basic groceries! Bitch of a wife has no sense of our household economy because she doesn't fucking work! She just wants more stuff more stuff more stuff to fill the void that is her fucking life!
When ever I think I've finally gotten a bit of stress release, no! Some fucking cunt sends me an email or a letter 'You've made more money than you should! Pay us this amount more!' I'm so fucking stressed every time I get a message that somehow relates to money! I almost get panic attacks now. I'm way more well off than most people and I still feel like I'm poor as shit most of the time having no savings or anything. This is fucking driving me nuts! I fucking hate money!
Atleast I don't have a mortgage for a house to pay off because that's gonna be a bitch for some people, so I got that going for me.6
Most upsetting interview rejection?
Back when I graduated college, I did the usual rounds of interviews with insurance companies, banks, various other institutional businesses set up by the college's career center.
One local insurance company interview I thought went great. Usual 'Where do you see yourself in 5 years?' type questions, told her about my job history, very high level type stuff.
Couple of weeks later I get a letter in the mail and after the usual 'It was great to meet you blah blah blah', it ended with
'State Farm will never consider you for a position with our company.'
Never?! My then fiance (now wife) yelled "WHAT DID YOU DO?!!!" and I racked my brain for anything I might have said or done. The HR lady was attractive, but I didn't stare at any body parts and I didn't make any weird sexual advances (I was nervous enough without *that* going thru my mind).
The college career center floods the local companies with graduates and I was #5 in the waiting room that day. My only guess was they got me confused with someone else.
My fiance wanted me to call them immediately to straighten out any misunderstanding, but I knew what was done, was done. It's not like they would realize "Oh, that's right, it was Bob that kept looking at Karen's breasts, not you...come work for us!" Besides, why would I want to work someplace that didn't know/care who I was?7
Why are banks so absolutely archaic and stupid when it comes to tech? I work in a Services based company and currently engaged with a very famous bank to build accounting software for Mutual Funds. The day to day stupidity of this client is driving me absolutely crazy.
They couldn't give us proper requirements, and my company was stupid enough to kickoff the project without official sign off. Not only did they change the requirements, but they added a shit ton MORE features, and essentially bullied us into completing it all in the same timeline. Their attitude is pathetic, they shit talk our dev team, they make us build the worst possible UX, and then complain that it's not looking good and not working well. They have absolutely no idea about any of the technical stuff and think that software is a magic box that will give them what they want.
I swear I have a lot of examples but I'm so angry right now that my words are fumbling and I can't think straight. Stand up is in 45 minutes and I'm just dreading it. Idk how to tell everything, it's just... AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA7
It all started with me attempting the interview at a bank only for exposure sake and I wanted to benchmark myself to see if I can make the cut because I was told their interviews are hard.
Before, I was sure I won't ever work for a bank because as compared to a tech firm, the general consensus think banks are filled with red tape and work mainly revolves around their proprietary platforms/toolings which isolates the engineer from what the real tech companies are using.
But when I see what they are offering me, the money is really swaying me now. I never imagined to be offered this much... What should I do or how should I process this...?5
What is java springboot framework/technology used for in institutions such as banks. Anyone with working experience to to explain to me...thanks1
