But you only added two lines of code...  ↦

Ah, the classic mis-alignment of value to LOCs. How have you responded to this type of question or scenario?

Why did a fix that seems so simple when looking at the changes made take two days to complete?

Because I took the time to investigate the real cause of the issue, not just looking at the symptoms. If some code is throwing an error, you could just wrap it in a try..catch statement and suppress the error. No error, no problem. Right? Sorry, for me, making the problem invisible isn’t the same as fixing it. “Swallowing” an error can easily lead to other unexpected side-effects. I don’t want to have to deal with them at a point in the future.
