@geekgonecrazy "have you tried turning it off and on again" is my standard season's greeting.

@citizenkahn I seem to always have a conversation that also goes something like:

Them: “So you are in IT right?”
Me: “Well actually I’m more of a software developer”
Them: confused expression
Me: “Yup basically IT”

@geekgonecrazy sounds about right. I'm a release engineer and when I say "I create and mange the virtual assembly line producing software" I might as well say "I sprinkle fairy dust on unicorn hooves" for all the understanding I see. I like the work, I like my coworkers, and it pays the bills. That's enough.
