programmers are a wacky people. myself, included. i just got called for some code that i wrote that they wanted me to update. it turns out that there were some error messages that i wrote in an application that basically spits out some rather…damaging error messages.
for example, there was this one case that i thought should NEVER EVER come up. because i thought it would never come up, i added a message that said:
and go figure, they did. heh. and there was another message i wrote that simply said, “panic.” odd because these cases should never, ever come up too. so much for that theory. but i really didn’t mean to leave those messages there. i meant to leave them as placeholders and to change them later to more professional sounding messages. oh well. i thought it was really funny, but the managers didn’t think so.
