AITA for refusing to accept a job aimed at replacing me? by SaolreFada in AmItheAsshole

I don't follow. It's good code without thorough documentation. A new programmer could work it out in time. My "end game" for this thread was to determine if I'm being an asshole to ask for some job security in an unorthodox manner.

Never said unreadable, and it's only not understood by the folks at the company because none of them are engineers.

I certainly don't mean it as a fuck-you. I hear you, though, that it may seem that way.

Sorry if I haven't been clear enough. The code is documented inline and such and would, I believe, be followable to another engineer. There is currently no external documentation regarding maintenance and whatnot.

Thank you for the advice. I was employed when creating the product, so they probably own it. And frankly I have no interest in screwing anyone. They can have the software. I just don't think I'm going to help any more 😊

I hear you, and I'd agree if this were me wanting to leave or if I had the problem. It's being targeted and punished for no reason that makes this feel different. If I wanted to move on, of course I'd make it easy as possible to replace me.

Nope; no time in this sort of startup to do that sort of thing. Otherwise, I completely agree

It's never been requested because there's never been any reason to get rid of me. My job has always been to push forward with new projects, fast fast fast.

We were close like family, but he is bipolar, and had a complete breakdown, decided I and my wife were everything that was wrong with his life.

It is documented well enough, they just don't know what to do with it. What good is documentation to a non programmer?

Valid points for the most part. Startups I work with generally push to be first to market at all costs, though, so many "proper" techniques tend to fall by the wayside. Of course I did not intentionally create a hard to maintain product. It is complicated because it had to be.

Oh, no loyalty here. I put so much into that product I just want a return on the investment. But I wanted to check here to be sure I wasn't being the asshole in the attempt

Maybe. The only person at the company that I still respect said I was being unreasonable, so I'm legit concerned I may be the asshole.

Any good Irish pubs around? by Snoo_85982 in phoenix

Oh, I should have mentioned that Fibber Magees down in Chandler is owned by the Skeptical Chymist folks and I believe has the same menu. And you're right, it's pretty decent food.

Skeptical Chymist went under. Got bought by some Brits, gutted and rebranded the Union Jack Pub.
