The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

My only solace in that is that he's no longer writing "code".
I had the same feelings about my former Bitch Supervisor From Helltm.

She barely understood coding concepts and management recognized that she knew enough to be dangerous and she was good at cracking the whip, so she was promoted to supervisor.

She was terribly insecure and terrified that I wanted her job (I didn't) and compensated by being a total control freak.

Those of us on her team have hours of stories we could tell about her incompetence.

I always said that if her manager had ever come to an abrupt halt, they'd need an emergency room proctologist to save her.

Instead she was eventually promoted to be the assistant to the new technology vice-president.

However after the company realized he was only a hot bag of buzzwords and equally incompetent, he was given the boot and she was out the door shortly after.
