"By the time Y2K comes around I'll be working somewhere else, so why should I worry about those two-digits years in those reports I just wrote?" - Yes, this guy is real, and stopped talking to me after I reminded him of this statement for the tenth time.
"Seize the day" - Horace
"It's not what he doesn't know that scares me; it's what he knows for sure that just ain't so!" - Will Rogers, said by him about Herbert Hoover
True story - was training a dev someone to take over my MVC system. Asked him if he had ever coded in Visual Studio before. "Sure" he said - told me that he had written a huge system using WPF et al - the huge system took him 3 months and it was a complete success.
Come time to setup his Visual Studio - he asked me to wait a sec to see if he had VS installed on his laptop. He didn't - so we got it installed.
Finally after 2 days - got the whole environment and solution setup in VS.
This is where it gets sad. Got him to build the app (had to tell him how to build the app..... you know like "f5"?) - and then asked him if he could go in the debugger to check something out - his reply "where is the debugger".
