When you solve a problem without Googling:

When you close your IDE without saving the code:

When I show my boss that I've fixed a bug:
When I upload a code without tests and it works as expected:
When marketing folks show developers what they've sold:
The first time you apply a CSS to a web page:
When the sysadmin gives you root access:
When you run your script the first time after several hours working on it:
When you go on weekend and everyone else is at the office trying to fix all the issues:
When your boss finds someone to fix a critical bug:
When you receive extra pay if your project ends before deadline:
When something that worked on Friday doesn't work on Monday:
