This is from about a week ago. I wrote a routine that captures the user comments about certain states of a map (like, an actual map of a city). This routine is then supposed to store it to be read by another piece of code that generates reports.

Out of my superior wisdom, I elected that the path to the map images captured, the associated comments, etc. should be stored as a CSV file (don't ask - it was 5.40PM). I spent the next morning trying to figure out why the report generation was tripping up. Of course, the user could enter commas in their comments (the strings aren't quoted) and that did horrible things to the naive CSV parser.

I have since cleaned up traces of my idiocy and all data now properly goes into a database table from where it gets read.
