You might look elsewhere for work

I don’t see this person getting any kind of Information Technology-type career, if you know what I mean:

What is coding and when do you know when an app need coding?

As someone said, this is the equivalent of asking “What is carpentry and when do you know when a house need [sic] carpentry?”

    Reminds me of when I TA’d a class in intro bio, circa 1995, and a student asked me, the day we were staining slides to observe bacteria, “Is this what a pathologist does?”

    I said it wasn’t all they did but yes, maybe sometimes they did try to figure out what bacteria were in a body.

    It seemed an odd question to me, though, and I mentioned it to a labmate. She laughed, pulled out the Newsweek (I think it was) issue that had just arrived, and showed me the ranking of “Top Jobs by Discipline.”

    You can probably guess what the top one for “biology” was.

    Dude doesn’t know what coding is or even if he likes it; he just heard he can make enough money to buy whatever awful car he craves* at it.

    *I am assuming, because Yahoo!Answers.
