I feel the same way, and when I was less experienced I used to - if not outright refuse to write code like this, I would make excuses to myself to get away from it at least.

Experience is an expensive teacher, but it taught me (among other things) that successful projects virtually never rest on great code. They rest on effective development practices, and those are more bespoke the smaller the team is.

Time is money, and money is king. That's what makes me feel dirty - acknowledging that cold reality.

If one is not something of a bean counter when one plans out their coding one could do better - by the clients.
To err is human. Fortune favors the monsters.
