I can spot a bad design a mile away

I spent most of my afternoon wrestling with one of the most convoluted and unfriendly programs I have seen in quite a while. 

Sometimes, being a software engineer and understanding a bit about the internals, I can be more understanding or at least sympathize with technical challenges.   Some things, in spite of all of our wonderful technology, are inherently difficult or awkward to implement.  I get that.  But in this case, it was just bad design.  

When I was through being frustrated, I was just sad. 

Sloppy engineering just makes me sad. 

If you can’t do something right, don’t do it at all.  Really.
