Try it now

That was unexpected

I changed nothing

It worked before

Works for me

Worked last time

It worked yesterday

Working on local

Worked in staging

Works as intended

Cannot reproduce this

Should work now

This shouldn’t work

Hope this works!

Is it working?

Feature not bug

Off by one error

Think before coding

Write more code

Decompose into modules

Write less code

Don’t repeat yourself

Goto considered harmful

Code is data

One more abstraction

That’ll be easy

Oh my bad

Who wrote this?

For historical reasons

Original developer quit

Not invented here

I’ll be back

Test in production
