What was your sin this week?

So we all love to chat about our wins but there's something cathartic about admitting the dark side acts we made. So please, let me know, what was your sin this week? What did you shit code when you knew you could have done better?

In my defence it’s in an app that’s earmarked to be β€˜decommissioned’ soon!
