Save me from people who think they know programming...
The first two examples are VB, all the others are C#, so don't give me that C# is better than VB crap Dead | X|
4k+ lines of undocumented VB.NET code in a single WinForm, boasting over 80 fields at the top of the file D'Oh! | :doh:
An application that uses global variables for everything! Seriously, they set a global product name and use it in a form, then set it again to use it in another form (breaking the first form if it was ever refreshed, which was not possible, until it was Dead | X| ).
40k+ tables in a single database, with no naming convention whatsoever.
1k+ lines in a single function with loops that are exactly the same, save they iterate over different entities that are functionally the same, but technically aren't.
A report that showed 2000 users, but took 20 minutes to run, team couldn't get it faster until they hired me and I got it back to 3 seconds.
Guy who called me a "little man", cost €100 an hour, but deleted my disposing statements because "the garbage collector handles it for you" and then broke production.
Some guy who created twelve classes that looked exactly the same, but with different read-only property values instead of one class and instantiated that twelve times OMG | :OMG:

All different projects made by different people.
