Discussion on: What IT stereotype bothers you?

"Oh they just work with computers."

This one doesn't bother me as much.In fact, quite the opposite: I think we as developers put too much emphasis on how important our career is and how it is tied to our personality.

For example, my step-dad is a truck driver. No one, except other truck-drivers care about what model of rig he drives.

All that said, I make it a point that I will not be my friends and family's on-call IT guy :P
