Programming is easy 😂

    When someone says something like this, I usually tell them to pretend I'm a computer and give me a simple task to do. Then I ask clarifying questions until they give up.

    "Make a sandwich."

    "Okay, what kind of sandwich?"

    "Ham and cheese."

    "Great, where do I get ham?"

    "It's in the fridge."

    "Where's the fridge?"

    "It's in the kitchen."

    "How do I get to the kitchen?"

    "Go that way."

    "How do I go that way?"

    "Just stand up and walk."

    "How do I walk?"

    Except the computer is like a 3 year old that can only talk very basically and has no actual understanding of life or context

    @EmberQuill you forgot to throw exceptions. Your interface is way too user friendly

    It's a pet peeve of mine when someone assumes that my job is super easy. (I'm sure most professionals hate this no matter what their career path.)

    Depending on the language, it may or may not be true. I'm teaching to an intern that has troubles with if-else statements, I'm literally making him draw flow charts to get him accustomed but damn I don't remember having so many problems when I started.
