It's not your fault that he reacted so strongly and punched a guy.

I really don't see that as your fault that the guy over reacted and punched a superior

Agreed, some people just don't have much control over their emotions.

#1 I kinda understand the guy. You really get fed up fixing mistakes that wouldn't be there if people were more careful and/or at least knew one tiny bit what they were doing.

I think I can imagine the guy accidentally punching someone just by raising his hands in the air saying "what the hell" to OP, and consequently hitting the supervisor when his hands go up, but if he really did just straight up assault his superior then I've got not a shred of sympathy for him.

#41 being that he was only admin I doubt he would have had to fix the mistake, more likely he was just pissed that the website was down. They were all working Christmas day, he was no worse off than anyone else and punching anyone over a mistake means he deserves to be fired.

41 no. if you don't like your job and it causes you to hate it so much that you get physically violent then you need a new job. if his job is to fix mistakes and he can't handle that it seems he needs a new line of employment.

OP,do you work at steam by any chance?

If you have ever done code, which is like fireworks in handling, I'm more surprised OP wasn't pissed about the fact that he would have to read the entire thing (or god forbid rewrite the entire damn thing). Though, add in one of the few days where people should be chilling with their families, I can relate a little bit with the attacker and OP...

Nope. Not your fault at all. There are many ways he could have handled the situation that wouldn't have ended up in assault.

Unless you somehow controlled the person and made him get violent, this is not your fault at all. Mistakes happen, if you get violent over it then you need help.

Well the captain went down with the ship ;)

You were both working over Christmas that doesn't excuse his actions. To err is human don't blame that incident on yourself. Everyone has typos; especially with auto correct on iPhones.

I doubt he was coding on an iPhone though, lol.

Poor guy? Don't feel bad for him. You made an honest mistake and he over-reacted. He deserved to get fired.

Nah that's not your fault. You didn't make him work over christmas and you didn't force him to punch your supervisor. Plus everybody makes mistakes

Poor guy nothing. We all have to do stuff we hate sometimes and mistakes happen. Sounds like a hot head who didn't deserve to work there.

Congrats on the promotion?

Why would getting an admin fired mean a promotion for a developer?
