A Timeless Lesson

You think I’d learn after all this time in DBs not to take the data for granted.  Here I’ve been troubleshooting a complicated query because I had some anomalous results when it turns out that the data wasn’t categorized correctly and I spent all that time on the query for nothing.

I’m telling you this not only to remind you to not take your data for granted, but to show you that no matter who you are (like I’m anyone special) you can make these types of mistakes.  So don’t be so hard on yourself if it happens to you because truth be told, I still do far worse on a regular basis.

It’s all about how to break up with your boss when you find a new gig.
