Happened just yesterday.
At 7:00pm some shared office colleagues rocked up at the building drunk, to inform me that they were having their own christmas party, since they couldnt be bothered attending ours the day before.
Mr developer are you giving me constructive criticism? or forcing your programming faith down my throat again? i really cant tell.
I like my work colleague, great to talk to, bless his heart, however he has this mysterious power to make whatever he writes sound super passive aggressive or aloof. For instance:
Me: this request , to clarify you want me to do this, as per this document
Him: is that what you presume?
Halloween is coming so i made this constructed unicorn mask with a paper mache base with elwire. Does it require any coding skills nope, but i bet people are goin to be suprised that i know how to build wireframes and papermache !7
Every c# job i see is like must also know .net, my question is, how the hell do you avoid learning .net when studying c#!?!8
Narrator(me): currently on keeping up with the clientele
Client: sooo-- go live in 2 days lol?
Me: im still waitin for finalised content from you and your designers
Client: oh , can you work the public holiday tomorrow , in anticipation for perhaps the of chance we will have sent xyz content
Me: hm tomorrows a public holiday.. but sure
Them: oh im in another timezone so its really 2 days - 12 hours
Narrator(me): thats when the boy realised not to let his guard down
I have been on a rollercoaster journey this year, long short quit my job, lounged around in emotionally recovery mode for a few months, went back to uni to study and recently i went and did some good ol networking and the results were pretty successful and ahhh life is moving to fast and im startin to feel invested in uni, but also money and greed is consuming me guuhhh doing both doesnt feel like a option haha1
Me to my family :
Family: so this printer not working
Me: have you installed its software
Family: no, can you do it?
Me: i could travel 1 hour or you can just google and download it, its really quite simp--
Family: yeah this is to complicated for me il need you to come over12
This is a little shameful, but i dont tell people i do IT since it leads to a , "wow you must be really smart, i could never do computer science" discussion.
Alot easier to connect with people without a plethora of stereotypes attatched to your SEO of a name4
Me: coding is fun , la la la, nothing can go wrong~~ ♡
Me: ahhhhh my back!! Why was i sitting in that terrible unergonimic position
Moral of the story , practice good seating posture and you wont get muscle knots! ;-;3
*starts coding in c#*
Me: hmm this bit of functionality requires some good ol inheritence
*has flashback to uni lecture on c++ *
Lecturer: And so you can use inheritence with friends for xyz, you know what they say friends can touch eachothers privates
*end of flashback*
Me: Guh! No, not the puns ! Guh!5
Client: I have lost everything on the cloud holy crap!
Me: Are you signed into your google drive, and within the folder?
Client: No, how do i do that again? I obviously cant be bothered reading your well formated and instructional guide and would rather contact you at 6pm on a saturday night8
