Last week a client had a meeting regarding an app I built for them for this one time project. This meeting occurred Monday.
Thursday I get a call at 8 am where they ask if they can get some fixups regarding the UI by Friday.
This despite the client knowing I work more than full time at another company and only take his business on the side.
Why does this always happen? You deliver a product and don't hear from the clients for days or weeks and suddenly they pop up and ask for a fix by the next day?
Currently introducing two coworkers to 180 kloc written by my predecessor over 5+ years time with tons of magic constants. I've been on the project for 5 months and don't know anything. They asked for the documentation and I gave them the look.
Two new coworkers step in. HR hasn't set up their accounts yet. We create all necessary tickets and wait. A week has now gone by. New guys are just sitting there reading documentation. Call HR
- We are currently processing the request.
- But what is taking so long?

Optimizing huge problems for the company. Get mail. *sigh*; Why is your script using up half the CPU on our thin clients? *place in complaints folder and go on*
Boss asks about it during scrum meeting. *Oh shits*
Need a cluster. Been asking for it for months...
Start runs on all thin clients. *Thou shall feel my wrath*
Complaints folder floods.
Expect rage from boss.
"IT seems to have found a cluster for you at last."
