So at work a case came in regarding our web engine. The customer created a set of web pages but for some reason when you go to the site it takes you to the default pages instead of their fancy dancy new pages the customer created.
I take a look and quickly figure out that the web dev guys for the customer are doing a ton of scripting and they are popping cookies all over the place. Right after that I figure out that it is the cookies that is causing the problem, the cookies are causing the browser to lose a session variable. Since the variable is gone, it goes back to the default site. I call the contact on the case. I explain, very nicely, that their cookies are causing the problem and it not actually a problem with our product.
At that point the customer does his best imitation of a three year old. He throws a fit, almost screaming that it isn’t the cookies, it is *OUR * fault, etc. I nicely ask him to edit the existing site to stop the cookies and see what happens. He says he already did that and it didn’t work. I state that I can’t do any further troubleshoot until stops the cookies.
So this morning I check email. The asshole webdev apparently called pissed off and got the case escalated to the developer. Guess what the developer finds? Turn off the cookies and all works well. It turns out the dev platform the customer is using does some really odd shit with cookies.
Gah! That is what I told to start with ya fucktard. I am not making this shit up to get you off my back, I am telling you what the fucking cause of the problem is. The fact that you don’t like it doesn’t change the fact that it IS the cause of the problem.
