in reply to Least favorite non-geek(s) at my job:

I voted "Boss".

I wasn't thinking of my actual boss, who is awesome: a woman in her early 60s who's been using computers since before I was born, and loves to reminisce about the good old days before UNIX.

Nope, what I was thinking of was the people "above" her. The corporate bullshit-pushers who judge software based on how good the food was when the vendor took them out for dinner, and spend all their time synergizing blue-sky paradigm cascades instead of doing an honest day's work. The MBA monkeys who hate the Perl programmers whose miraculous feats of productivity support the entire business, because we don't fit into the neat Java worldview they want to believe in.

Man, I could almost get bitter about it sometimes. :)
