One of my neighbours came by today.

Her: So... I heard you're working on a website
Me: Yes, correct
Her: Nice, and does it all work?
Me: Yeah
Her: I use a WordPress template myself too

WHY DO PEOPLE HAVE SUCH LOW EXPECTATIONS OF ME

    I was talking to a neighbor the other day and when I told him I did software development, he definitely thought I was a tech that set up/configured off-the-shelf solutions for people. He was shocked when he found out the work I did was "custom". I think there are some people who just don't think about where things really come from? Like, there are those people who think eggs and milk and vegetables come from "the grocery store", and then there are those people who think software comes from "the internet" (and I'm sure there's a lot of overlap between those groups).

    Did you get to take a look at her wp-admin?

    @HollowKitty I think it's because the layman just isn't exposed to programming. All they see are wix ads which tell them anyone can make a website.
