Please stop fucking asking me to install your shitty mobile apps. They do the same thing your site does. I have a browser, and it's a lot better. I don't even visit you every day. But even if I did, and I wanted your crappy app, I'd open the app store and download it by myself. No need to push me.
No need to waste the little screen estate I have with crappy call-to-action sections to download that shit.
Fuck your desire for more information about me. Fuck your narcissistic enjoyment when I have your icon on my fucking home screen.
The truth is, there is a very small number of apps that really need to integrate with a phone to offer better experience.
I feel most of you feel you need to have an app just because everyone else does. And so you could show these little Android and Apple logos on your website or ads. Well, how about you just make sure your site works well on a mobile screen and don't waste your money on a half-baked mobile shit app unless it really offers something worthwhile?
And if you do have a good app and it really does something, ask me just once and fucking respect my choice. Don't just ask me again and again, on every page, with every new session, or I'll just stop visiting.
You're all not that unique, so fuck you!17
TL;DR: The bitch ruined my Friday.
I was in a really happy mood when I arrived at office in the morning today, because Friday.
I was assigned a stupid production error to test. Being a proactive person, I completed the task only to get more on my plate.
Why? Because fuck me that's why!!! All of my main task was aside throughout the day which has been pending since ages. The loser I work for, never allocates time for my main task and end of the day, yells at me that my task is pending.
Fuck the cock sucker because he is sucks at work delegation.
So, when the next stupid task was allocated, after analysing the entire scene, I realised this is something which I have never worked on and have absolutely no clue about. Rather this should be assigned to that team member who has already worked on it, because they'll be able to complete it efficiently.
But this bitch, forced me to do the task and the said team member roamed around having gala time. This pissed the shit out of me.
Anyway, I tried to take up the challenge and asked for some help from the said bitch, who denied completely, asking me to refer the documentation which was written like shit of a rat.
I somehow managed to make my way through it but ended up failing countless time.
I seek the bitch again for some help. This time I made it clear that I am unable to complete the task and I am finding it difficult without any help.
The dick sucker guides me half way, asks hundreds of demoralising questions, making me question my self esteem and confidence.
I keep my calm but that asshole keeps demeaning my actions and now I loose shit.
I start behaving rudely and back answering slowly. The dumb bitch doesn't get the hint (we talk over chat as she is in another location).
I told myself to stop working until she helps me and called the day off. She never cared to revert and now the task is pending which will be discussed again on Monday.
She refused to listen at any cost. And that's where I realised that Narcissistic Dogmatic Hypocrites are worst people to work for.
Just wish me luck that I don't break her jaw and finish the task without creating a scene.
Such people should be fucked by a wild boar in their ass and be made to suck a donkey's dick.
Ruined my Friday.26

List of most annoying website designs.
1) Pages with AUTO PLAYING VIDEOS.
Yes I'm looking at you Netflix. Along with every news website known to man. I'm looking to read a fucking article, so why would you even waste your money and bandwidth trying to shove a video of some shit I don't care about in my face, and make it follow me as I scroll down like a fucking insecure puppy. Also, fuck you Instagram.
2) Pages that redirect once immediately after you visit them, thereby fucking with the browser history and the BACK BUTTON just leads back to the same fucking site.
I mean, just why. Did you think I would just go "Hey the back button doesn't work so let's stay on the site and read their awesome content"?
3) Sites showing things in a SLIDESHOW, when it actually should be in a list.
Slideshows are for progressive stories or for showing lists where you don't care about what's in them. Top 10 foods that reduce weight. Slideshow 1/15. Fuck you.
4) LOOKS LIKE YOU'RE USING AN AD BLOCKER
Yes. Yes I am. No I will not turn it off for you, you narcissistic snowflake fuck. And don't even try to guilt shame me into turning it off, because I know you're just going to bombard me with videos of sexy singles in the area if I do.
5) Pages where I see the first 3 lines of an article and have to SUBSCRIBE to see more.
Yes. Brilliant fucking idea. A user wants to see what your site has to offer, so within the first three seconds, don't show him exactly that.
6) Looking up an article and having to read through the entire motivational life story of the author.
I just want to know how to boil eggs, not read about your journey across Africa learning how to make difference recepies using boiled rhino dung.
7) CLICK BAIT.

I just mistyped a keyboard shortcut that caused my computer to say «I AM FILO AND EVERYONE LOVES ME» at full volume.
I have no memory of leaving a script attached to some random shortcut, and I can't find the setting anywhere.
Young me was a narcissistic asshole2
Somewhat unpopular opinion time. I don’t 100% hate Facebook.
I do not support their data collection, but my biggest problem with FB is the users. My connections are inherently idiots because I’m in high school with people who are way too narcissistic and full of drama. I left FB because of the toxicity, and the data protection as a result was a bonus.
I support the original mission of Facebook, to connect people. I just wish it was still about that.5
I'm so scared of the people on stackoverflow that my method for debugging a problem is to write up a question by which time I'm shocked into finding a solution. I'm just too scared of being ridiculed by some narcissistic dev (who obviously never makes any mistakes, ever) or, heaven forbid, having my question down voted and closed.5
God damn dude, stop it with these probing questions! Making me all introspective and Shit...
To be honest, it's got to be myself. I am very bad at just learning something and sticking to it. I get bored easily but I also struggle to truly understand what I read/learn which is a terrible mixture.
I'm also extremely curious. This means I'll abandon a lot of things before fully completing them.
I'm bad at asking for help. Truly asking for help. I feel I should be the absolute best at everything I do and as arrogant and narcissistic as it is, I don't like asking for help even when I'm drowning. It's such a fucking terrible habit but it's been ingrained in me for as long as I can remember.
Another is, oddly, initial overconfidence. A long school career of excelling with little effort made it so I felt I could do absolutely anything without even trying. Boy was I wrong.
Oh, also, letting my mental health get in the way of Shit. It's a giant pain in the fucking ass and I hate it so fucking much but when you're constantly stressed and running on 5 hours sleep most days, the black dog comes running regularly.5
Wtf is Instagram. Seriously how many times do you have to be hit in the head with a fucking shovel to be even moderately amused by that garbage fire. You can't even upload more than ten files at once?! I mean I get server space but fuck me! That shit is goddamn fucking pathetic as fuck. These cock licking cockroaches who find interest in this banal baby vomit green trash are using precious oxygen. Seriously, to upload multiple photos took like twenty minutes. And then they were all wrong because I shot them 4:3. But this is a fucking photo sharing application and crops wrong with 4:3. What the living, breathing, fucking fuck? People actually live with this shit and use this?! ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?! How narcissistic and stupid do you have to be to put with an application that doesn't even fucking run in browser. This was my first time ever attempting this fucking black hole of vapid self destruction. Never again. And fuck people willing to do it.7
I've really struggled to make friends with people who code... and it's been absolutely frustrating. Does everyone in this industry have a god complex or something? Everyone I try to make friends with ends up being super narcissistic and self obsessed it's crazy. One of them wanted to be my mentor a while back, and we still talk occasionally, but after getting to know him I decided I didn't want to learn from him. It turns out he only mentors people to showboat his greatness and claim later that all their success is directly his doing. I decided I wasn't going to be one of those people and I only ever had 2 sessions from him. One of the best choices I've ever made. But I've found a lot of people who are programmers tend to be a lot like him. A lot of them I talk to will hit me up to brag about themselves or what they've done. But none ever ask what's been up with me or how my journey is doing? Is this just a normal thing in this industry or am I just meeting terrible people. It's made me appreciate my slightly dumber friends, cause at least they care about me and it shows.
More a rant than anything, but genuinely curious if anyone else has this issue... I'm starting my bootcamp soon and I'm hoping to make friends but I'm so concerned about this it's kind of giving me anxiety.14
I don't profess to know the whole story, but what is it with the (what seems to me to be) overly-fragile, cry-bully mentality of the Node.js community and its various branches? The current mess is not the first time strongly opinioned, overly zealous loud-mouths have driven the ship.
Throughout the history of time, teams/groups of people have been made up of different characters. Some are nice, some aren't really and everyone has varied characteristics. There seems to be a drive to completely flatten the behaviour, beliefs and attitudes of any sort of gathering, and it makes me so mad. Some people are so obsessed with their ideas of equality, diversity, inclusivity and safe spaces that they can't see how negative and discriminating those attitudes actually are.
I fully accept that certain behaviours should not be tolerated and should be called out. And communities and societies will organically decide what those are.
But when you raise an issue, approach it like grown up and thrash it out to a resolution - don't throw your toys out of the pram and put on a real public show, targeting and scapegoating other individuals when you don't get your way! This is childish and narcissistic. If this is your only course of action, you should realise you haven't a strong argument.
I've ranted here before about how the mainly social media discussions on any subject drive us all to extreme ends. And this is just another example. It's wrong and narrow minded and not remotely progressive - the opposite of what those who should loudest claim to be.3
Ugh... some people...
Just left the office early because of the toxic climate. That one infamous collegue is basically unable to communicate without being a narcissistic 5-year-old and was arguing whether we should write a test (I was going to write the test) that would need a single additional branch in the build system.
(The test was for a parser and it should test whether it can handle absolute paths. A simple regression test with a file and an expected output. Because absolute paths are different for every platform and user, the files to be parsed would have to be generated with appropriate paths before the tests were run. Well that would require one single python script and a single line in the script that runs the script and DONE)
Well that guy was unable to focus on his own work and started an argument about whether that test was necessary.
Even though I still think it is necessary, it might have been a reasonable argument if he would have acted more agreeable. But he was saying the feature was useless anyways "everyone will use relative paths only anyways" and "because noone here cares a ratass about maintaining the tests it will all fall on me again" ..
Wtf was this guys problem, I (CAPS) was going to write the stupid test and since when do we not write tests in order to better maintain our product? I get that he worries that the test environment will get more messy, but thats better than having the product code go messy or unfunctional! And c'mon guys, how are absolute paths a redundant feature...
So I might be the only one, but I actually like the rush of installing Firefox and hacking out bloatware from my family's computers.... Makes me feel smart and powerful. Not my degree or job, but whatever.6
I wish I didn't have to go to work tomorrow and work for my abusive, pretend-to-be-programmer, narcissistic, overly dominant and often mean spirited boss.
I'm seriously thinking about quitting even though I have not worked there for very long, I'm a little scared of the consequences. I obviously won't quit before I have signed something else. But what scares me is the uncomfortable conversation with my boss as well as telling my co-workers who are great.2
I'm a complete noob in this tech world so finding a job it's getting hard (for me).
I applyed to be a highschool teacher so they made me some tests and apparently i'm too narcissistic for the job, although they recommended me to try tech related stuff.
Soooo... Did i hurt your feelings, because teaching wasn't my first choice?
Still looking for a job.
