If you're a programmer or otherwise involved in creating software, you should really be reading The Daily WTF. Where else will you see gems like this?
There's a good selection of seriously messed up development stories there too. The recently posted Very Slow Service is one of my favorites. It's a great little database optimization story with a very predictable and political outcome.
