(This will probably result in a ban, but whatever)

So bizarre, so obtuse you just can't see the answer?

I got blindsided and walked into a legacy project I swear was written by Martians.

We have such gems as magic numbers: return code 97. WTF?

Or let's change the code based on the return value of a frick'n button that you just changed the text on: Ok becomes Done, for no reason in the thinking universe

I've been banging my head against the wall for the last 6 months over a damn print routine, which is called all over the place, but is rewritten 3 different ways.

And don't get me started on the database side of things. It's possible, and happens on a daily basis, to enter a completely illogical combination of products, suppliers and customers and insert that into the db in such a way as to f*** everything over for the next thousand years.

You'd have to be a floating database guru clad in a white toga and ghandi level of sereneness to fix this [redacted] fustercluck.
