Sometimes I wish I was allowed to just strangle my colleagues...
Example from the 'code base':
except Exception as e:
When I asked why they would redo the same call right after it failed I was told that 'It works the second time because it takes time to raise the Exception '.
Bitch, you've got a race condition in your sensitive banking software. You know it's there. Do you really want to trust the time needed to raise your exception will always be enough to synch that dumpster fire you call code?
Show some fucking respect for your craft and fix that shit. But of course they won't, because it will work flawlessly until it suddenly stops working. Taking down who knows what in this damn, undocumenred monolith with it....
Sometimes I'm honestly afraid to trust banks with my money.7
Gotta love going to a support forum and going through three pages of literally nothing but "I'm having this issue too" with 0 input on fixing said issue.
Its finally fucking over.
Ive done it.
Finished my internship and can finally leave this shithole for good!6
Explaining to my boss why we can't use the WordPress theme he saw on Theme Forest in an Android app7
My mom got audited for storing sensitive client information in her gmail account without using a vpn or any other real security.
I had been telling her this was an issue for literally the last three years and shes brushed me off every time.
I got yelled at for not telling her I was serious.38
Literally translated from dutch but I think you'll get it:
(Debugging stuff with customer)
Me: alright so in what area are you now, our customer panel or your hosting control panel?
Client: Rotterdam, why?
It would be pretty fucking cool if you listed what information is needed in the fields you fucking cock sucker.14

It doesn't feel good to be average at everything.
Life is depressing
I can't commit to anything hard enough to become the best.
I'm just average.
I feel bad
I feel like I'm a waste of resources.
I'm tired of ranting.
This life is just tiring.
I don't have the patience
I'm average at commitments.
I see other people code and sing better than me and feel demotivated
I feel like jumping of a cliff cause no matter what I do, there's someone light years ahead of me.
I'm not even unique
Ultimately that's probably what I want.
To be irreplaceable.
I guess in this struggle to be relevant I'm gonna lose myself and if I do get there, I might not be as happy anyways.
So what's the point to all this54
Me, whenever I attempt to use eyeliner...
(real talk, this is why I don't bother trying to use eyeliner)6
This post is in memory of all the devRanters fallen in battle against management stress and impossible deadlines.
Let their memories remain, and their loss never be forgotten.7
Client: I want to go to the moon!
Me: Sure thing! I will build you a rocket.

Client: Build me a car.
