HA! I just had one a couple days ago!

I have spent the last 2 months moving all of our scheduled background jobs from Resque to Sidekiq. This past week I finished moving all of the jobs over to Sidekiq and it was time to rip out the Resque scheduler. I removed it in the morning and it felt so good deleting all that old code! The rest of the day things looked great.

The next day, I found out that another separate application needed the Resque scheduler running so I had to put all of the code back. I was so bummed that despite moving all the jobs we still couldnt get rid of our dependency on the Resque scheduler. I was also frustrated that I had spent an entire day removing all the code, and then had to spend an entire day putting it back. Nothing frustrates me more than wasted time. 😝
