When you walk in at work in the morning, hoping for a quiet Friday at work, but nope. I check our WP monitoring and see that half our sites aren't responding. Well fuck. Turns out that the firewall service we use to protect our sites experienced a massive DDOS attack. So the service we use to keep our sites safe ironically caused downtime. Me, our Devopser and another dev spent the entire morning bringing the sites up again and bringing the customers up to date. FFS, I need more coffee.2
Patching a legacy project: all logic inside an 8000-line file called class.cms.php, on frontend, one js file with about the same file size...

Love this type of problem first thing in the morning.
Page lists data for user. Edit button replaces the line with a form for the data line with save and cancel buttons. Both buttons replace the form back with the simple line (oc save button only does so if post was a success).
Client writes they can't go back after clicking on edit - forgets to say, where in the World they want to go back to, when they get their initial page back with updated or unmodified data depending on their button choice.
