Especially when you were expecting a dozen rows to be affected.....
Ain't that the truth
SQL isnt a programming language, it's litterally in the name
DELETE FROM table; WHERE id = 123; Syntax error near "WHERE id ..." Fuck
That never happens. All the noobs making that joke never worked with large datasets. When you run such a query that affects records in the order on 100s of thousands, it takes a lot of time to execute. You will be lucky to get it complete and get an answer even within a few mins on a decent server. Yes I am fun at parties
