Joke from category: Bancuri in Engleza (English)

proposed: 27 Nov 2006

The truth about working in the IT industry:

1. We work weird (night) shifts...
2. They pay you to make the client happy...
3. The client pays a lot of money, but your employer keeps almost every penny...
4. You are rewarded for fulfilling the client's dreams...
5. Your friends fall apart and you end up hanging out with people in the same profession as you...
6. When you have to meet the client you always have to be perfectly groomed...
7. But when you go back home it seems like you are coming back from hell...
8. The client always wants to pay less but expects incredible things from you...
9. When people ask you about your job, you have difficulties to explain it...
10. Everyday when you wake up, you say: "I'm not going to spent the rest of my life doing this."

After the film had ended, I decided to go and speak to the man:
- That's the most amazing thing I've seen, ... read all
