What a fuckin’ day…

Not a bad day, just… a fuckin’ day.

The thing I thought was broken last night – not broken, my dev walked me through the logic and yes, that made sense. Not the logic I would have used, but I am not the designer, so… I deal. Though while trying to do additional testing on it all day my brain was going, ‘THIS IS WRONG. SO WRONG. SO VERY WRONG.”

Then I had one scenario – not a freakishly common one – but one part of the data just looked *weird*. The math worked, I checked multiple times, it just looked odd. I can’t tell you why it looked weird, it just did, but again, the math worked, so, I had to let that go and accept that sometimes things look weird and you can’t articulate why they do. (I suspect it will make sense later as many things do.)

Then of course I found one more little thing late today – I don’t know if it’s actually broken or another situation where I’m applying the wrong logic to the calculations. But I swear, I seem to only find this shit late in the afternoon, and my dev must think I don’t do shit between 8AM – 4PM.

And I was feeling bad cause it took me til Friday to find the first problem – but I realized, the earliest I could have actually found it was Thursday, *and* there is another person parallel testing on another system…and I haven’t heard a peep out of them until today, so I don’t know if they didn’t run into it at all, or what is going on there.

There’s part of me that wants to scream, “OK, didn’t hit this problem until this afternoon, BUT THEY DIDN’T FIND IT EITHER!”

Just one of those days you want to shout from the rooftops, “I’m not incompetent!” while everyone around is probably going, “Um, OK, didn’t say you were.”
