The Weird and The Wonderful

   

The Weird and The Wonderful forum is a place to post Coding Horrors, Worst Practices, and the occasional flash of brilliance.

We all come across code that simply boggles the mind. Lazy kludges, embarrassing mistakes, horrid workarounds and developers just not quite getting it. And then somedays we come across - or write - the truly sublime.

Post your Best, your worst, and your most interesting. But please - no programming questions . This forum is purely for amusement and discussions on code snippets. All actual programming questions will be removed.

WTF, is there no QA anymore?

Almost as bad, inept QA.
Our esteemed QA department (what I call our one guy) closed a Jira that wasn't even yet in his queue. I had to call him out in Standup yesterday. I asked him how he tested the change, in all 5 different applications it went in, when I intentionally had NOT moved the code into the branch that builds the QA environment. "I just saw it was related to the one application as the other stories I was testing and moved it over."

Later I went back and checked the story and sure enough in my description was what he SHOULD have seen if the code had been migrated over. Since it wasn't, the message wouldn't have appeared and he should have Failed the story. I now know he didn't even READ the story before passing it. This is not the first time he has done this.
I’ve given up trying to be calm. However, I am open to feeling slightly less agitated.
I’m begging you for the benefit of everyone, don’t be STUPID.
