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.

I run into this type of stuff too. It's so frustrating.
Recently signed up for a health care account thing.
They were spamming me.
There was a field that said, "don't send me any email".
I wasn't allowed to choose it unless I gave them my bank account number. I'm serious.
I contacted them via email -- the only option.
I said, turn off that option.
They sent me an email back -- two days later that said please call us at 800.555.1212
What? So stupid.
I emailed back. I'm not going to call you.
Here are the screenshots, uncheck the option.
They finally did it.
They also told me, "you can't set that option because your phone number isn't in the account"
Guess what? The phone number is on the same page in a field right in front of them on the screenshot.
This is how technology makes our lives better. Roll eyes | :rolleyes:
