What do regular people think of programmers?




I often see situations where programmers are thought of as tech support. But in reality a programmer... is just a programmer. S/He doesn't even need to know how a printer works or how to even use a printer for that matter. What might a non-techy think of a programmer at first glance?


Possible Answers:

YOU MAKE GAMES?

My "use," you mean, "mindlessly copy"

that's usually the case when you take a computer class (especially from 65 year old men who learned how to use the computer when computers were the size of a room).

Mindless copying. No explanation.

They even get insulted when you point out that there's a shorter way to do something. It's like "WHAT?! INNOVATION?!! I DIDN'T SIGN UP FOR THIS!!"
