I absolutely hate it when someone says, "Can you work your magic on this?" Whether it's a presentation, a spreadsheet, a server, a network, a desktop PC or whatever - I don't do magic. I work my a$$ off! I went to college, I've been in the business for years, I keep up with changing trends - WORK, not magic. Maybe it's partly my fault for consistently meeting or exceeding their expectations, but it's a lot a damn hard work. They never see the 16 hour days or the weekend long deployments just to make sure it "seems" like magic. I REALLY, REALLY wish they knew how much work it actually is.
