"Why did you use jQuery instead of <other lib>? We try to avoid jQuery as much as possible."
@decadecity I'm kind of new to this world, my previous jobs were all in very small tight-knit teams where everyone had to know about everything and be very proactive to get shit done. This is my third week here, usually by then I would have fixed the build and deploy system, added critical monitoring, and written a dozen wiki pages, most of this outside office hours.
@jkb It does sound like your current #missionofDoom is particularly bad but maintaining that "time => money" distance is a valid coping strategy in situations like that. Someone I knew on a particularly mind numbing gig had written an app that sat in his status bar and counted up the money he was earning in real time 💸
@decadecity In my situation it's easier because I'm not a freelancer, I'm an employee at a consulting company. This means I'm getting paid no matter what, even between missions or if the client goes belly-up.
