It’s great that you can apply the knowledge you’ve learned at school in your future job. But, in reality, when you actually get a job and work to earn money, there’re so many things that you need to figure out yourself. Imagine you’re a car mechanic, and now that you need to catch a snake from inside of a car. No books or training have you prepared for things like this. Still, things happen, and we need to adapt and survive.
Well, it turns out that understanding the machine is not always the hardest part of working as a mechanic. Seriously, for all the trivial, unrelated tasks they have to do while “changing the oil” or “inspecting the brake,” they deserve a raise. Like the poor techs in this post, they have probably cried so hard seeing these horrendous things at their job. Keep up the good work, folks. Good things will eventually happen to good people.
