  • Sometimes I wish I was dumber. Dealing with dumb coworkers is annoying....but they continue to skate along ignorant to their mistakes, even after I have corrected them many times.

        Ignorance is bliss apparently. I wish I was dumber too.

        • We had a new Service Now implementation today. It was as bumpy as you'd expect it to be, but no major show-stoppers. I'm a "rip the bandaid off" guy so I prepared my team for a couple of frustrating days before we figure things out.
          I gotta little bit of smoke and a whole lotta wine...

            Was there go-live cake? ;-) Been awhile since I've seen one of those at a SN go-live. COVID was probably the last nail in the coffin for those.

            I want to fire all of my clients. No matter where I'm staffed, it seems they just get worse and worse over the last 2 years. No desire for real change or process improvement, just customize the platform around our sh*tty and nonsensical legacy processes, technical debt be damned.

              You should charge double to update crappy systems instead of new.

                Ooh, great idea. I should suggest that to management at our company retreat next month.

                "New rate card structure - we charge $210/hr blended rate if you adhere to recommended configurations that don't have much custom code or require us to bend the platform in a manner that might fuck up your upgrades. However if you don't listen to us and you want a lot of customization it'll be $300/hr for a junior dev's time, $375/hr for a senior dev or architect."

                  I'm aware these kids can beat me up or worse, but this is something I wanted to do.

                    • That's awesome MissT!! Congrats!!

                      I, on the other hand, am ready to call it a career. [insert thumbs up emoji] I won't, but I'm in one of those moods. I just got fucking attitude from one of my team members who flew in for this team meeting about lunch that I ordered. Gah - the more I type, the more insanely frustrated I'm getting.

                          No cake. It was exactly has frustrating as you'd expect, but we do have outstanding folks working on it so I don't want to complain. There simply isn't a good way to do this type of thing.


                          And I hear that. Since I'm on a company PC I don't want to say too much, but the amount of "just do it" directives about absolutely terrible workflow is really really frustrating.

                          • Now my boss is upset that I didn't put a notice on her desk yesterday.

                            Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the two weeks a courtesy?

                              Yep. You do it if you want a reference or want to leave on good terms. If you don't care, it's not a requirement barring a contract. If they can fire you with no notice, you can leave with no notice.
