in thread Paid for crap

The data types were really just integers. The supervisor was just trying to find something wrong with the code, when there really wasn't anything.

He had a similar change made to a comment. It was broken up into two lines, he wanted only one long line. Brought defects up in reviews of spreadsheets because columns were too wide, too narrow, et cetera et cetera.

Replies are listed 'Best First'.

    I've seen this before as well. It seems to happen when less-competent folks get some power and then turn into little tyrants. Actually, outside of programming, you see it all the time with inspectors of all kinds that work in various levels of government.
