If at first you do not succeed...

If at first you do not succeed, go back and write it again.

One of my biggest pet peeves is when I have to re-write my code, or some one else's, for that matter. Especially when they don't leave behind any documentation or comment their code.

I'm in a Web Design 5 Honors class at my school, and I'm basically the debugger for everyone. I don't like doing this, but I get a grade for it, so I don't bitch as much as I should.

If some one's CSS template doesn't come out quite the way they want it to, they show it to me, I point out the error, and send them on their way. But when they expect me to fix it for them, I straight out say "no". And they have the nerve to get mad!

Listen here folks, if some one is doing work for you, for free, and they don't want to do something particually demanding when you ask them, you aren't allowed to get mad. These people are doing it out of the kindness of their hearts (and for a grade).

I will, however fix the code my teacher sends me, though, because I get paid to (via my grade, see how that works out?). It's always nice to listen to tbe boss and do what he/she says, they sign your pay check (which in my case, is my report card). Do whatever the boss asks you to do, even if you don't want to.

But I'm not saying be a complete kiss ass and just write out the code like you're a zombie (COoOooooodee....). If you spot something wrong with what the boss asked you to do, point it out (politely) and suggest an alternative. But if the boss wants it done the way he/she said, then do it. Simple as that.

Also, I've been reading The Crucible by Arthur Miller, and I think it's a fairly good story, try reading it sometime :D
