Just like that, out of nowhere, a neon green Camaro cut Kara off forcing a mash of the brake pedal and a slight jerk. Their vehicles didn’t collide and there were a solid 3 inches of clearance between their bumpers in the sea of brake lights. Such a close call would alarm most people, or at least get some adrenaline pumping, but Kara had bigger fish to fry.
Have you ever thought, “There’s got to be a better or easier way to do this?” Maybe, you’ve thought, “This tool already exists, but if it did <THIS> then it would work so much better in my weird, edge-case scenario?”.
Have you ever had someone come along and interfere with your work?
Dealing with this sort of problem, whether intentional or accidental, can be a major buzzkill. Let me tell you about Carol from Finance. We all know Carol. She is constantly meddling in everyone’s business and reminding us how she saved nearly one hundred grand last year due to her savvy budgeting. Well, last night Carol decided it would be a great idea to turn off some Azure resources to help reduce the cloud bills. She powered off a VM that was temporarily serving as a SQL server during database migration. The next thing I know I’ve got tickets coming at me in every direction.
