That's fucking defeatist.
You know, this profession takes a lot out of people. And I'm not incredibly thrilled right now. What the fuck do you do? I'm not quitting, because I'm just not that weak. Where do you go from here?
I could go get some Unix admin or Perl hacker job, but you know, I've fucking done that. And I'm frankly fucking good at both. I don't want to step down from where I am and go do the same shit in perpetuity. What's the next thirty years going to be? More of the same old "fix the broken computer thingy", or "help the stupid customer understand their expensive hardware"?
If there were a word, like, ennui, combined with belligerent, that's about where I'd be. Fuck. You. World.
