Software Developer == Whore



  • Just received in an email. Sorry if anything got lost in the translation:

    1 - You work on a weird schedule (emergency calls by late night and stuff). Just like whores do. 2 - You get paid to satisfy the client. Again, just like whores do. 3 - Your work often goes beyond the regular shift. Like a whore's work. 4 - You're more productive during late night. Same time when whores do most of theirs. 5 - You're rewarded when you make the client's wildest dreams come true. Whore do so too, they just calls those dreams fetishes. 6 - Your friends are often distant, and you only hang around those in your same line of work. Ask any whore, they suffer from that too. 7 - When you meet the client, you've gotta be presentable. But after a long meeting you'll be looking like you've just came out of hell. Just like whores. 8 - Your clients (and your boss) want to pay you less and less, and they want you to leave them in awe with your work more and more. And yeah you guessed, just like whores. 9 - When things go wrong, it's always your fault. A whore is the only one responsible for the client's satisfaction. 10 - When asked by your family and friends what you work with, you have trouble explaining it. Can you see where this is headed?

  • Another post reminding me why I don't go to the funny stuff forum often.

    Neither do I; the Not Read forum is usually much better.

    Oh, this isn't the "Emails that were passed around on AOL in 1996" forum?

    It isn't even funny. All those things (maybe a little bit rephrased) can be said about other occupations too.

    Just a bad and unfunny example of the "if a then b" "if c then b" => "if c then a" fallacy, only a bit disguised.

    The only problem is that every single joke is explained right afterwords.  If you need to explain it... you know, it isn't that funny.  But otherwise I chuckled.



  •  I have to admit, when I read the subject line, this isn't the story I envisaged.
