True enough... I suppose in the final analysis, my mother was right
(She didn't want me to go into engineering...) I doesn't seem fair, I
think... An honest university professor should tell his engineering
students that the bosses of engineers are the worst bosses and every
other boss an engineer has will be worse then the previous boss... I
still have a smile on my face though... Empathy as a science is
controlled by engineers... It is dishonest to claim that anyone
empathizes with an engineer... It gives engineers at least the margin
of power... Only engineers collectively can legitimize who is and who
is not an empathetic character.
