I find weird when devs try to avoid testing, do they cook and serve without tasting the food?, they write without reading it after?, are their egos so huge they cannot conceive that their code may not do what they expect?, testing is not a separated thing, is just see if it works, instead of manually try different parameters, you automate them, is so weird to me avoid that, is like saying my job is not typing, is coding, bring me a typist!. QA has a different job, is Quality assurance, they also should make tests, just as they also type, and also turn on their computers. Are those prodigious devs that think they are perfect, picture a car designer just making a prototype and then send it to QA without even try it?, designing a circuit board, populating a breadboard and send it to QA without even turn it ON to check if is fine?.

Testing is annoying, I hate it, is boring, feels like solving the problem twice, but I don't like cleaning my house nor enjoy brushing my teeth. To those perfect godsend infallible programmers, even if your code is actually perfect, I have no reason to believe it, prove it, show me the code that says it works, testing is part of our job, deal with it.
