my colleague just came over to my desk with a dead look in his eyes.
"There's over 100 if statements"
They've had him on powerapps all week.
Every line is typed by hand.
Today I was asked to make a quality control checker for work, I gave it the quick name "fuckler", next thing I know I've got a whole greeting banner with the name (pictured)
[Manager comes up behind my workstation and sees it over my shoulder]
M: "What does it do?"
[Before I can say anything all the guys around me celebrate how it automates the whole QC]
The manager's whole face lights up and everyones smiling at me
No one's even asked me to change the name, I'm genuinely excited to go in tomorrow. I fucking love this.30
//I don't mean this to brag, or upset anyone for that matter- just there are a lot of sad posts.
I only mean this to appreciate them.
Growing up, my parents supported anything I wanted to be.
They paid for my first computer(s), and always made sure I had the resources to learn anything I wanted to.
They understood when I dropped out of high school.
They ask about all my projects, and they're supportive of all of it, usually fascinated.
Even the parts they don't fully understand- they really do try to, and it makes it so much easier to work knowing that they're impressed with me.
This Friday is my first real interview where I hope to start as a junior, at my dream job. They've never been prouder.
I can never thank them enough8
