Just had an argument with my senior about this thing.
At work me and my colleague use pylint to format python code on save. We have the same fucking settings.
But Mr " I am so special over here" doesn't, argued a good 10 min how it's hard for him to figure out if the re-formatted line was the changes for the releases when it comes to code review, and instead of using, easily, the same fucking plugin as we do, he demanded that we should switch to what he is using, a vanilla fucking sublime or else our release will get declined and will have to re-do the whole thing from scratch from his branch.
I am just wondering how a guy like that ended up a fucking senior
To all those heavenly seniors who felt like telling us ground dwellers that tomorrow is the deadline.
Thank you for bestowing upon us your unfinished tickets and bugs at the end of the day after wasting your times watching youtube and browsing facebook.
"Hey man, there is an error message that appears on sentry, i think it's caused by your latest release"
Me: "sure send it over slack so i can see what the error"
Sends 3000+ character text copied directly from the browser.
Most hours I worked were a total of 30 hours 2 months ago.
I usually freelance after my day job, and back then I had a tough client.
This client had me sleeping for less than 3 hours a day for that month, with their on going demands.
That day,I had gotten up at 5 AM to show up early to work, check in, finish fast and roll back home to finish the clients work because "they" were behind "their" deadline.
Funny thing is, the company I work at also had a deadline as well. I stayed with the boyz until 8 PM and then drove back home, bought on my way a 4 pack of redbulls and chugged one down while the coffee was brewing.
I kept working until sunrise and reached a point where my face was stingy and numb 5 hours after the 24 hour mark.
I was done with the bastards request and added the short noticed features they pinned as "urgunt" to my tickets at 2 AM in the morning that night. Only to be called moments after I uploaded the changes that they were pleased with the progress and everything else, but also had other feature to be implemented ASAP if it was possible.
At that point I have had enough of their bullshit, and told them that I can't keep up with their on going demands and their pace of requests does not fit a one man job, and they needed a team. I thanked them for their feedback and told them good day and hanged the phone.
In the end I got my payment and that was that.
But yeah 30 hours is my max capacity so far, I don't think I will do that again.1
Be working at office.
Cute girl I like comes over telling me there's a server side error.
Tell her I am on it, she stays behind me to watch.
Fiddle fast around the code, and keep checking error log on my second monitor.
"Found it. It's a blah blah error, don't worry I will write a handler for it."
She's smiles an honest smile and tells me I must be good at what I do.
Thanks me, pats me on the shoulder and leaves.
all I did was:
logger.info(" write random shit to know where I am at : "+ str(error))
My life is a lie.24
You know what bugs me?
When we be working on a core feature for a week based on vague interpretation from both the product and the team lead.
And we miraculously finish developing and testing it ON TIME and reaches beta flawlessly.
The product comes and suggest edits that changes the whole core prospect and structure of the fucking thing.
And asks to be done by the end of the day since it's just an "enhancements".
God fucking dammit!
Fucking agile my ass.
Got a new bug ticket this morning regarding displaying a table with data.
The issue was that sometimes on alpha release, the table would render without the header.
Been trying to replicate the issue and tracing it for more than an hour to no avail, at the end I gave up and added this line to the html:
<div *ngIf=tableHeader.length != 0 >
<!-- renders the page content -->
Waiting for my plane to land, after my 4th lager I am getting this urge to write this one down.
So, this goes back to when I started working as a web developer 2 years ago.
I have been working for 6 months and getting the hang of the whole thing. My senior just scored another client and suggested that I would take charge of this one on my own, said he felt i was ready and I would get a bonus if I was able to finish it before it's due date which him and the customer felt like a week was good enough.
So, being the enthusiastic junior I was, took the designs, requirements and dived right into it. 3 days later it was 80% done, when the customer decided to add new features. No sweat I said. I am already ahead of schedule and could squeeze it in. Big miskate because by the day before of the dead line I found out from the customer that my senior handed me the wrong requirement and didn't fill me in that they needed also to fill in the content. Feeling fooled I confronted my senior about it matter which to my surprise he went into a fit as to not question him and it was my responsibility to fix things as I was in charge of this project. Plus, I should have anticipated filling the content as it was "common sense" as he placed it.
Feeling pressured and pissed off I worked the whole night till next morning without sleep. Filled the content and fixed the site to their request.
Of course I didn't have enough time to fully test the new edits. So errors and small design issues came here and there.
The customer wasn't satisfied with the result and shit went downhill from there on and we ended up losing them.
Long story short I got a warning and a a last red flag for what happened. By the end of it I had enough and 2 month later I resigned.
Note: I was working solo on this project and got little help from another senior by the end of it.3

Got called by a guy I know from my friend a couple of nights ago.
Apparently his point of sale system wouldn't start normally.
Wanted to tell him that what he needed was a system admin and not a developer, but seeing how he was panicking on the phone I told him I would be over to take a look.
Get there, turned out it was Microsoft Access 2003 with an interface running on it.
After a solid 30 min of trouble shooting I figure out that an mdb file is missing that's causing a run time error.
So, my best guess was that I would go to system restore.
I Scrolled to an earlier version of that folder, restored the file and voila! Worked like a charm.
The guy was so ecstatic, payed me $ 70 and offered me booze.
That night, I made $ 70 got liquored up in 30 min.
How was your weekend?1
