But I've noticed this. The people who want to get it do. There aren't many of those. I remember very well one user right after another blindsiding me with issues, and non-issues, and deliberately circumventing the channels. I did NOT come up with these channels either. They were created by people over me. When I tried to play by the rules, some of these users said I wasn't "helpful" simply because they didn't get to go to the head of the line just because they wanted to.
It boils down to the perception people have of technical work. Another poster already made the reference to the , "Just push some buttons and it's done" notion. But it also is the whole, "I want my thing now, and I don't want to pay for it." thing that is prevalent in both individuals, and management. Geeks have, in the past, just worked 16 hour days to make it happen because they like to solve problems, and they felt like they had to.
Some very wise young people are learning to find another way to make a living these days.
