Uh, I accidentally checked that for you a while back. Kinda. I didn’t leave a mistake in order to find it later but, while customizing a web site for different browser sizes, I changed the text color with each size so I could tell more easily what viewport I was looking at at any moment. If it’s red, it’s 700-1000px etc.
I made a mental note to remove those extra colors before handing the site to the client and also told my colleagues to remind me, which they did, and I saw those extra colors several times and thought, right, I gotta remove those, and then I handed the site over to the client and guess what I didn’t do?
I actually signed into the project at home later that day to remove that. I don’t think he had the opportunity to notice. So no awkward conversations with the client, right?
Wrong. I also added a field called “nonsense” to the back-end to test for some functions that didn’t work right. I deliberately called it “nonsense” for it to stand out and remind me to remove it because I couldn’t possibly hand that to the client, right?
Yeah, so that awkward conversation did happen.
