Laravel Components

It happens quite a lot of time with me that I have to sort out some legacy codes. Every time I am assigned the task I get told that these 'codes works, just improve them'. I don't mind the language of a stupid creature who knows nothing about programming, I can't expect them to phrase - 'This is the logic we want.
