Response to: Never mind...

I had a boss when I programmed at an aerospace firm. He'd look at me somberly and ask "Is you program working yet?"
I'd say "no".
He'd say, "Well then, I guess you must be working."


He was just joking but, that day, I had a lousy sense of humor. Now what he said seems very funny, the paradox of programming employment. At the time I thought badly of the joke and feel sort of sad I didn't just smile when he said that. Had the blues today, maybe I was supposed to remember that boss. OK. Maybe I feel better now.
