I alluded to this in my post today! dev.to/laurieontech/don-t-get-fool...

Just because you find the question on google...doesn’t mean you’ll find the answer alongside it :/

Holy shit--this is so accurate!

They say that a junior developer's mistakes have a small impact on a project, but a senior dev's mistakes have a big impact, so by that logic, the experienced programmer's rake should be even bigger.

For anyone who deals in formal logic I've always been partial to the following.

Programmer's spouse: Could you go to the store and buy a gallon of milk? If there are eggs get a dozen.

...Programmer return some while later with a dozen gallons of milk...

Programmer's spouse: Why on Earth did you buy twelve gallons of milk?!

Programmer: Well there were eggs.

Reminds me of this one:

The programmers roommate texts them "hey, while you're out can you please buy some milk?"

The programmer never returned...

He should crash, he don't have enough money to buy infinite milk.

This reminds me of a sign I used to drive by a lot that read "End 55 MPH Speed Limit". I was always like "Woohoo, the only speed limit that existed just ended!"

Collapse

Yechiel Kalmenson

Lol, apparently speed limits can be nested, so when you go from a 75mph zone to a 55mph zone you're still in the 75... 🤔

A programmer walks into a bar and orders 1.0000000019 root beers.
Bartender: “I’ll have to charge you extra for that, that’s a root beer float.”
Programmer: “Well in that case make it a double.”
