What Would You Do If You Were In This Situation

What would you do if you were in this situation?

Who are we in this situation? If we're the gray bubble, I would apologize and stop being so flaky. The purple bubble really isn't at fault here at all.

What would you do if you were in this situation?

If I were in your shoes, this is what I would do before quitting (which is what you're essentially doing) and asking to be reassigned.Raise your concerns to the Team Lead.  It is his/her role and responsibility to mentor and guide less experienced developers.  If he/she refuses to do so, I would have to say that he/she doesn't belong in that role.Don't expect your hand to be held.  It's your responsibility to be proactive and grow in your role.  Take the time and opportunity to learn.  If you have no desire or passion to improve, then as Glenn stated, you're probably in the wrong line of work.Ask the lead if he/she wouldn't mind pair coding and/or helping you out by conducting peer (coding) reviews.  Feedback is very helpful in fostering growth.Ask to work on other parts of the code that are a little less challenging.  I'm not suggesting you to take the easy route, yet rather, to work in areas that you're more familiar with, while still having exposure to the more complex parts of the project.  Eventually, with time and practice, the design patterns will all come together. Look at it this way. If you're working on a large puzzle, as you get closer to solving it, you start recognizing the image/pattern and it usually gets easier at figuring out where the pieces belong.Stay motivated and don't give up! If you like your work and what you do, stay passionate and try not to be disenchanted.  Like anything in life, you'll have your struggles and will need to work hard.  Training for a marathon can't possibly happen over night, yet alone a couple weeks. It takes dedication and commitment.Good luck.

What would you do if you were in this situation?

My boyfriend has depression and a lot of his friends dump their emotional baggage on him. Mostly these are some of his friends that are girls. I always ask him not to talk to them when they are doing that but he just thinks I'm being jealous. I just think it's really inconsiderate that they do this and I can tell that he gets really bothered by it because he stays up most of the night.

What would you do if you were in this situation?

Be honest. I just wanna know. (women only):
Story 1: A fellow worker from your career asks you out on a date. He says that it would just be dinner at his house. You accept. That night you go to his house. There is a note on the door. It says "Come In. I am in the dining room". You open the door and slowly creep inside. All the lights are on. You set down your purse and coat on a coffee table. You walk into the dining room. He is laying on the dining room table butt naked, waiting for you. What do you do?
Story 2: Your 16 year old son comes home from school with his girlfriend. He says that they are going to study together. They go into his room. When it's supper, you go to his room. His girlfriend is posing butt naked on the bed while he snaps pictures of her. What do you do?
Story 3: You find out that your husband is having sex with another woman. Turns out, the other woman is your mom. What do you do?

What should I do? And, what will you do if you were in my situation?

You guys have jobs? If yes, you can take your own decisions. Move out of your parents house. Like this, if her parents force her to see guys for an arranged marriage, she can reject them and can avoid the emotional drama. Keep it down for a while. Talk to them politely and calmly. Tell them you have no plans of eloping or doing anything that would make them sad or unhappy.I am sorry it has come down to this. But you guys are going to have to be tough with your parents. It may get uglier. But you guys have stuck it out for so long. A little more won't hurt.

What would you choose if you were in this situation?

If I have more apples than I can eat, then I would turn the ones I can't eat into cider. If I cannot turn them into cider, I will give them to someone who can eat them. No point in wasting apples

What would you do if you were in the same situation as the main character in the movie "Passengers"?

I would do the same thing he did, wake up a particularly attractive passenger of the opposite sex.The big question is how come, it the time after they both woke up, they didn’t wake anyone else up.The other question is this: if they have enough food for 5000 people for 6 months that’s 2.7 million meals. Two people would eat 173000 meals over their lifetimes resulting in a possible food shortage for the people left on the ship when they do wake up.That’s one of the only reasons I wouldn’t wake up any more people. Although they could wake up one more person and then put them to sleep from time to time in the sick bay so they wouldn’t age.

What would you do if you were in a situation where you wanted the beat the living daylights out of someone because of something he said/did to you but could not because he was way too powerful for that?

When I was sixteen or seventeen, my dad and I got into an argument. I can’t remember what it was over, but it got heated. I do know that he was drunk.My dad is not known for his levelheadedness. He lost his temper, and for the first time in my life, he punched me.It wasn’t painful, and this is one of only two times my father ever laid hands on me out of anger. He’s not a small man, either, and I knew I’d have no chance in a fight.So I did nothing.But last summer, my 15-year-old brother got into a heated argument with dad as well. They were right up in each other’s faces, and I was trying very hard not to get involved. But I was tensed up, fully prepared to throw myself in between them if dad lost his temper.If you hit me, I’ll probably take it. If you hit someone I care about, I don’t care who you are, I’ll knock you senseless.

What would you do if you were in the same situation as "Groundhog Day"?

How do you know you're not? Of the 6 billion people on earth at the time of Bill Murray's character's time loop, he was the only one aware of it. That means there is a only a .000000001 chance that YOU would be the one aware of the loop. If you are however, the one, I think he handled it quite well. He went through all the stages of grief and emerged a better person (with a lot of new skills). I've seen estimates that his loop was about a decade in length from his point of view. With 10 extra years (or more) inserted between today and tomorrow. Wow. What a gift. I'd read, I'd explore, I'd try and fail at a million things. If there were no risk... wow. The nice thing about that kind of free time is that you don't have to go in with a plan. You could take your time to decide how to spend the time. After impulsive time sinks have worn off their luster you could find constructive uses as he did. With a good day like that, you could do a lot. This is one of my all time favorite movies by the way. Thanks for asking the question.

What would you do if you were in my situation? A Saudi prince is harming me and my family with witchcraft.

To start with, on the face of it, the question seems to be unbelievable because witchcraft is not allowed to be practiced in Saudi Arabia as it is one of the five (5) "Red lines" not to be crossed.However, if what you are writing is true, then depending on the circumstances, I would opt for one of the following two (2) solutions:Seek help from the Court of Law (as the courts in Saudi Arabia follow Islamic law and in Islam, witchcraft is prohibited) if there is proof.If there is no proof, then quietly leave Saudi Arabia and go somewhere else.Sheikh Nisar Ahmed
