If my code doesn’t work for the changes someone needs to make, I am delighted when they refactor the shit out of it.

It means I wrote code that a random person some time in the future felt safe and confident modifying. That is always my goal.

Some managers wrote me when I am leaving the company saying: “You left behind big shoes to fill for anyone to take over your tasks”. I hope not.
