lazyload44320d4 is actually not bad, I'd even encourage them if they're younger or less experienced than me. Fuck the rest.
Charon928510319dI just tend to get people that either assume I earn WAY more than I do and are angry or people who don't really know what I do and are angry and assume they could do it because they can use the tools that some other programmer made that seem complex.
"I used to use software X all the time and got really good with it. One day an engineer said 'Hey you're really good with the tool I made and you're just a Y. You should be here working instead of me!' 'I don't know why but maybe I should be.'"
General assumption that just because you're good with the tool means you'll be good creating said tool.
It does seem that the general assumption is that it's really easy to do and anyone who doesn't do it is somehow getting fucked over and we're all just sat manically laughing as we count out our millions.
How little they truly know.
