I typed a long email and Outlook just hanged and closed. Upon re-open my email did not get saved to drafts. Argh!4
My biggest insecurity is not being able to understand the problem or figure out how to solve it.
Also seeing that we aren't finding a common ground to agree to about the problem and/or solution thinking if I was just talking gibberish to them all along and I can't just carry the message across.1
Co-worker asked for a call and then when I replied "you can call when ready :) " the reply back is an all caps "IN A MIN"
I'm not the one asking for the call and I'm also not rushing you to have one.
To me all caps means shouting and it puzzles me because while typing it the other person can see it and previous that they aren't using all caps. Why continue using all caps if you aren't angry? 🤷
How do you interpret all caps in a work chat conversation?1
When I read the rants here it's like people don't love their work or would rather not make their children be a developer someday.
Where's the Care Bears when you need them.
Come back to semi-darkness. Dev is fun!13
It's sad. My teammates are resigning :( Damn management for not taking care of people that they already have. You hire new people with higher pay and let your existing people with lower pay teach them. I just feel like resigning too.5
I don't mind helping but puuuuuuleeeeeease learn from what I have been teaching. Flex your brain and give me your initial ideas instead of waiting to be given the answer. I need to know you are learning and you are critically thinking the error. I don't expect you to be right but I expect you to at least try. Please try!2
Project Lead(PL): Can you copy your program in LX. I want to check if tables have data or not?
Me: Hi PL, let me try
Me: Program is now in LX
PL: okay let me check
Me: also added the change...< for that bug you found on the not-paid self-initiated program I built>
PL: did you do it in LE or 1E?
PL: I just changed the < system connection settings of> LE to LX
PL: it does not show in LE
PL: SYS ID SHOULD BE LE
<at this point I just couldn't understand the need for all caps>
Me: <sends screenshot of program in LX>
PL: <differentiates LX and LE box>
Me: <sends screenshot showing I was asked to put program in LX>
PL: Oh my apologies
PL: I wanted it in LE
PL: so sorry @iamai
Me: yup all caps doesn't help :)
Me: let me put in LE
Sometimes it's better to tame the anger and read first.
When it is a Sunday and you reply to an email with tone of urgency and you are torn if you reply to the other emails which doesn't seem urgent but still has the same client list reading. To email or not to email.2
Getting cooped at home to a avoid COVID is annoying because it got me remembering my ex. I hate myself for shutting down a few days thinking of him. If only there is an "Empty trash" button for emotions. Finally I get better today. I resume studying for work and target to pass the certification. Strive to be better!3
