Do you guys often get upset because of people that ask your job because when somebody asks me what I do for a living and I say "I'm a programmer" this someone says one of these:

1- Oh really, can you tell me HoW tO HaCk NaSa? (It's more often than you think)

2- WOW AWESOME SO I HAVE THIS BiLlIon DolLarS ApP IdeA CaN yOu ProGraM iT?

3- Hm... and... what do you do for a living? (Apparently programming is not a job)

4- Cool! Me too! Bcs once I MaDe ThiS GaMe I prOGraMmed WiTh GaMeMaKer (true story, and it was a flappy bird, but in the place of the bird it was chuck norris with a moustache instead.)(with lasers.)(Also it wasn't really working.)

5- Cool bro, so, can you take a look at my printer?

6- Hm nice * looks away with disgusting face * (that was my own family lol ;-;)

    1) you'll need to watch Weird Science, it's a great tutorial on hacking into systems.

    2) yea sure, go draft it up and we'll talk.

    3) I make keys go "tap tap tap" and millions of dollars enter a bank account, what it is you do again?

    4) sweet man, you should finish that up, I recon that's going to be a hit.

    5) it looks like a printer to me 🤷‍♂️

    4 is actually not bad, I'd even encourage them if they're younger or less experienced than me. Fuck the rest.

    I 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.
