I recently had the best job review of my life. I only got one ding. It was
said, in the "plays well with others" section, that if I wanted to improve
one thing, I should let others be right - even when they aren't. I have a
habit of not tolerating fools. It hasn't earned me any friends.... well, I
should say, not any dumb friends.

I can't stand the people who configure software applications and operating
systems calling themselves programmers. In fact, recent high-level
"languages" and scripting languages don't qualify as programming either.
