"I have no idea" seems to sum up about everyone I've ever worked with Sigh | :sigh:

One time, I had to fix this production issue.
People were standing still and the company was losing money.
I wrote a quick fix from home, asked someone to accept the pull request ASAP and drove to the office (a good one-hour drive).
It was literally some literal string that needed to be changed, a one-word fix, so I was sure it was correct, the pull request would be accepted and everything would deploy to production automatically.
When I arrived at the office, the reviewer was waiting for me.
I had to make the literal string into a constant or he couldn't accept it Dead | X|
And while I was on it, I had to do this for every literal string in this class Dead | X| Dead | X| Dead | X|
The code made an API call and we simply had to pass some constant codes to the API, but instead of "SomeCode" this developer wanted to see SomeCode.
I asked him if he was out of his Elephant | [mastadon] ing mind and that people were standing still over this.
He wouldn't budge and ultimately I changed one or two string literals into consts just to move it along Dead | X|
