I used to think I was the kind of programmer that was good with people. That somehow I was special because I could get on with colleagues and make clients happy.
But fuck people. It’s so easy to be nice, just don’t be not nice. Don’t say rude things and be surprised when I’ve had enough.

Apple’s copy paste from your phone keeps ass biting me. Most of the time my clipboard has some obscure porn link that I don’t need to accidentally paste on a live share session. There are now dozens of people that know too much about me15
I can’t use paper clips anymore, everywhere I look I see his face.
