Being a programmer is like a city car driver.

You have something in common with every single driver in the city: You think you are the only one who know how to drive. Everybody else thinks the same.

Programmers have the tendency to think the same way. We think that everybody else writes shitty code, but us. It does not matter what is the programming language or technology involved, we all look at someone else’s code and will start ranting.

It doesn’t get old.
