It must be a Friday.

I got a call about 30 minutes ago from a relay service for someone who can’t speak and needs to use a keyboard to type. So, I accept the call and think it could be a hosting customer, development inquiry… who knows. Immediately, I hear the relay operator say, “I have a stack trace for you.”

I then listened to a woman repeat… character by character... the entire stack trace for an error in a Rails application. I listened… the whole way through… just in case it was a person who needs Rails development.

My developer staff then laughs after I hang up after 20 minutes… and I think to myself… how do I get back at them. o.0
