in reply to Paid for crap

A co-worker had issues with a PHB. The PHB in question was our customer, who was... well, let's just say "very specific" in his coding style.

For example (just one example of many), my co-worker was told to change

// variables not representative of actual names int alpha, beta, kumquat;

into

int alpha; int beta; int kumquat;

My co-worker was not happy with the change, but had no position to veto the PHB's changes. -sigh- Moral of the story, it may not be the fault of the programmer, they may hate the code just as much as you do.
