A friend posted this screenshot of a game error on FB with the caption

This sounds so heartbreaking





Maybe it's just me, but I howled with laughter.

As a haiku:

the promise was made
rejected or resolved though
sounds so heartbreaking

Oh!  That's what they mean by "meaningful" error messages...

But that's what I find so funny about it. To a developer it makes perfect sense as one of those "this should never happen" scenarios -- but to the general game player sounds full of angst and of broken vows.

I found the message itself amusing -- but it was my friend's reaction to it that put me over the top.
