Why can't the mess be cleaned up the next day?

And, honestly, just how often does do people in your team drop the ball right before leaving for the day? Every day? Every other day? Every week even?

If someone's dropping the ball so frequently, perhaps they're either in the wrong job or need some serious training and mentorship from more capable members of the team.

And if it doesn't happen particularly often, what are you complaining about?

perfect, exactly. this kind of "501ers drop the ball and repeatedly let down their colleagues" is just the kind of chuckleheaded received wisdom that the ninja coders have been putting about for too long. we should all challenge it.
