Comment: The Beer Principle (Score 1) 735

by novasoy (#30273704) Attached to: Should You Be Paid For Being On Call?

How about this, which I hearby call the Beer Principle (patent pending):

If being "on call" means I have to remain sober the whole time, you need to show me the money.
If being "on call" means I can get drunk in the privacy of my own home and not get in trouble if you call me whilst in my cups, then we're cool.

Agreed. You don't want to look at your code. ABAP gives me a headache, and the way SAP designs their code.... I guess I'm just not smart enough to follow what's going on after the 20th INCLUDE within an INCLUDE within an INCLUDE. It's poorly documented, and usually the comments [in the code] are in German.
