Continuing with the “annoying things” theme here.
Some days ago I started to feel pretty annoyed about the fact that there was some dust and sand or whatever on the floor. When I walked over it – bare feet – those small nasty lil things felt annoying under my feet.
In fact, this was so annoying, that I just had to do some vacuum cleaning right away.
It’s not the first time this has happened, and probably won’t be the last time.
In fact, I can see this same phenomenon happening everywhere. People are getting pissed off about something so much that they spend tons of time improving it. Just to stop the annoyance.
Refactoring happens quite often due this. It’s not that we really always need to clean the code… it’s to stop the annoyance that we feel when facing the unclean code. At least sometimes.
Care to give me an example from your own life (gamewise or other) from this phenomena? Don’t tell me that this has never happened to you.
