update: this is the clip: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AbSehcT19u0 Many thanks to @Krill.

Good day everyone! A long time ago, while working as a full-time programmer, I saw a short funny clip that I could totally identify with and that brilliantly described what daily frustrations programmes face in a way that non-programmers could understand. Description below. Thing is, I was unable to find it since and it frustrates me to no end and is hampering my ability to describe programming work to other people. Though I no longer program for a living, so I should not care. Anyway.

Video description (vague, from failing memory): A handyman reaches for his equipment but finds out it is not plugged in, so he reaches for the plug, only to find it broken. He proceeds to get the replacement / fix from the drawer but its handle breaks and stays in his hand. Bang, final title: the daily life of a programmer.

Or something like that. Please help.

Since people are curious Ill explain why:

I need to build our project from the remote repo using a PowerShell script (.ps1). I’m using Bash in the VSCode terminal, I have to run the .ps1 script in a new Command Prompt because the compilation takes around 5 minutes and I need my terminal for other things. To do this, the only way is to run a batch file that executes the .ps1 script.

Its an automation so I dont need to touch powershell whatsover and remain in bash terminal. Instead of opening several windows, I automated all so it only takes 1 alias to compile my shit.

The compilation also requires several inputs and "Key Presses", so I automated all of that in the Batch file.

I was thinking of making a Free Open Source Resturant, with free food and drinks made purely out of free software components. I was thinking of licensing this under the GPLv3 for a freedom living experience, and not only that. I was also thinking it all in Rust!!

Forgive the hastily made meme. All too common with us engineers.
