    In german there is a word for that "Die Berufskrankheit" which means the occupational illness. It's the condition where because of your profession your view on a topic has changed and you can't unsee it. And you spot wrongs everywhere.

    @heyheni what's it called when your profession causes your friends to hate telling you they bought something, same thing?

    @gomsim jätte kult! det viste jag inte och vad slags arbeitskadar har du då? 😄

    @M1sf3t huh? in what context do you mean that for example? Like in, they bought a cheap ass laptop and are super happy with it and you tell them it's a trash laptop and they should have bought x laptop instead?

    @heyheni that along with predictions of when they will have to call you to fix said laptop for x, y, and z problem.

    You can always tell by the sound of the frustration in their voice when your phone rings a few weeks later 😅

    Even worse is when u wrongly assume, this is how it works and sometimes just undermine the engineer's effort. Totally get this feeling, trying to go back to the state of blissful ignorance

    I can still enjoy a rainbow, even if I know how it works.

    If only we made rainbows..

    Actually, did you know in some countries, you need planning permissions to make rainbows !

    Apparently they are considered a hazard to planes..

    Sometimes making the game was a better game than the end product

    @electrineer everything is gamified these days. We're a bad Monday away from Jira shipping a J-Score attached to your account. And before you know it, it will be available for all to see in your LinkedIn account.

    yeah, as RememberMe suggested, you might have lost (some of, or maybe even all of) the enjoyment of proper suspension of disbelief, but you've gotten the enjoyment of seeing behind the scenes.
