Software Engineers’ Truth
All software engineers know what all loop-holes they have left in the system, What all crap has been written by them so they do not want to use the same thing for themselves. I remember when I was working for AXA Life Insurance and Airtel launched Life Insurance business with AXA as partner. One of the representatives approached me to take up the policy and I remembered an old problem that happened with one of the insured person – That person took the policy some 20 years back and kept depositing all the premium in time. Just 1 month before the maturity it was found that the “coverage segment” i.e. the segment which defines that what all coverages that person has is missing. Hahaha!! It was fun…You keep giving in money for 20 years and the company’s software does not have any update on your coverage. Anyhow, since the initial letter given by him at the time of taking up the policy was there so every processing for last 20 years (240 months) was done and data was corrected.
My question is – suppose Tsunami would have come during this time and that paper would have been washed away then what would have happened.
