Occupational Intensity

Large boy shaking fist at small boy

I saw a guy yesterday — let’s call him Jack — that I used to work with 20 years ago on my first programming job.

My most vivid memory of him is the day he offered to sock another programmer — let’s call him Sid — “right in your f^$&ing face, Sid” because Jack was unhappy with the quality of Sid’s work.

You rarely see that kind of passion and zest in the workplace anymore . . .

Thus spoke The Programmer.
