How should I store the current date in firebase or any database? this is my current approach
PM: have a look on this website and let me know if we can do this?
Me: Umm...the product is unfinished and it is built upon WordPress so it can be done...
Me: Send credentials so that and requirements...
PM: 'Need to finish the website and fix errors'
Me : [that's really vague but okay] Okayyyyyyyy
Me: Send credentials
Me: Moral of the story is, do not approach me if you do not have complete details...please fuck off...
PM : we don't have it1
how many emails shall I send for payment reminders?
This was supposed to be a day's job and it's been a month for the delayed payment. (Also this was supposed to be a favor)5
found this garbage/default manifest.json in production :
"short_name": "React App",
"name": "Create React App Sample",
"sizes": "64x64 32x32 24x24 16x16",
It's Friday morning, I haven't had my coffee yet and already stumbled upon 2 bugs in staging. How did QA miss this on development?
Oh wait, we don't have QA!2

I promptly quit the project and tried to explain to him the difference between a "demo" and a finished project. He was supposed to check the functionality of the fucking form, which he didn't.
Got a call to finish the project, him explaining nobody is working for him for given budget, he can't afford anybody in this town (literally), and I am not going back.3

Can marketing (and PM) asshats take a moment, think about the word "just", the amount of time they are using it and STOP USING AT ALL. It's fucking irritation to hear that word.
for example, it just needs to be get done, OR
just do an AJAX call and it'll be done.5
found it useful!
me vs marketing guy, again
me: yeah, the database server is not responding, so you cannot log in to post your blog, wait for it to get online.
MG: But, the website is online.
me: web host and database server are two distinct things, they are not the same, *share a screenshot of the error*
MG: Oh okay.
Literally 3 hours later this fucking idiot sends an email and I quote.
@CTO FYI, Someone has removed this code So there is some tracking issue on it.
Please add below google analytics code on the website.
Note: Copy and paste this code as the first item into the <HEAD> of every web page that you want to track. If you already have a Global Site Tag on your page, simply add the config line from the snippet below to your existing Global Site Tag.
<!-- Global site tag (gtag.js) - Google Analytics -->
<script async src="https://googletagmanager.com/gtag/..."></script>
window.dataLayer = window.dataLayer || ;
gtag('js', new Date());
The fucking issue was of him not being able to post his shitty blog, and he shares an email like this, FOR FUCK'S SAKE!2
I fucking lost my motivation for what I wrote a bug (unknowingly intentionally) instead of a feature. EXACT FUCKING OPPOSITE

I just want to test my PHP code using phpunit on GitLab, what am I doing wrong?
# Install & enable Xdebug for code coverage reports
- pecl install xdebug
- docker-php-ext-enable xdebug
# Run our tests
# If Xdebug was installed you can generate a coverage report and see code coverage metrics.
- phpunit Test.php4

thoughts? is GitHub another CDN?2
Dear Marketing Guy,
You had no right to manipulate the perfectly working "WordPress" site, but since you have done it by injecting a script you found on the internet in functions.php, It is now my unpaid job to fix this mess.
P.S. Fuck you7
