Keep it simple!

I believe that in order to be able to guarantee best possible working conditions for everyone it is sometimes necessary to report suspicious behaviour to the authorities. I believe that something here must be wrong. Let me recount what happened and afterwards you may decide wether there should be further investigation into this strange matter.

Yesterday I was still a happy programmer, I didn’t know what was going to happen. I was working on a project, right in the middle of it. The usual troubles were plagueing me: bugs left and right threatening to delay everything. Then I made a few changes, pretty big changes. Deleting a lot of code in the process. I was trying to simplify the structure of my code. Yesterday short before I left work, it started. Around 3p.m. all the data had imported: flawlessly and without needing further corrections or fixes. After I had implemented my changes, the code simply worked!

I knew immediately something was fishy and my suspicions were confirmed this morning when after a server reboot all my tests were successfull. This cannot be! I cannot be done with the project. Yesterday morning everything was still a mess and today I am done? Something is not right, we must investigate …. help, help … all my bugs have left me, I am all alone, my work is done …. my project …. it’s finished. Help!!!!

PS: I really think that this cannot be it but the current status of my tests suggests indeed that everything is fine. This is suspicious, I am not joking!

  1. Clearly, the bugs are hiding. But they will eventually show up when you demonstrate your project to your boss or some very important customers.
