I have a colleague who always nit picks on every merge request and never leave a positive comment. Sometimes he makes a comment just for the sake of it. These days when I see a comment on a merge request by him, I have an instant bitter feeling seeping in. 😵😵😵😵. Getting reviews is unnecessarily frustrating because of this. If there is a variable naming suggestion, he would comment in on every place the variable is used. Isn't noting once enough?!! People should learn how to nicely add review comments.1
I switched to a new product line in my company almost 2 years back.
Today a junior come up to me and ask, do you remember this bug that you fixed 2 years back? Can you tell me details of that.
I mean, why does such questions asked when there is a worklog in a ticket and you can see actual code changed in git. Am I expected to keep all the trivia of the bugs that I fixed in my whole life in my head😐
Fact is he waited two days for me to be in office to ask this. How long would it have taken to check what was fixed in git.
A similar thing happened when we were rushing to give a delivery. One guy refused to fix bugs in the code that was written by another developer as it was not developed by him. Some people have this idea of perfect code with no maintenance required which is pure BS.
I have seen fucking people who consider doing web design using HTML CSS is of low status and show a grim face. What's the problem with you? I don't understand.4
