So you wrote that function, but it doesn't work and you have no idea why.

But did you MAKE a CALL to that function SOMEWHERE in your code or it just sits there alone and lonely? :))

Seriously, when I focus so much on functionality, sometimes I forget to call that newly created function. That's why I started calling the function first, and then start writing the function itself.

Or even write a test for the function first 😉

omg this happened to me the other day... but I usually call the function first so it didn't dawn on me to check for the function till after a couple of hours just to make sure and BOOM, no function... I added the function, confirmed it worked and closed my editor. Didn't code for the rest of the day.
