Why I hate geek parties

You know, sometimes I really hate working for Nokia. Not because of the company, but because of the fact that most Finns have an Opinion on Nokia. Let me summarize a discussion I had earlier today. And last week. And last month. And about two dozen times in the past five years.

"Well, Nokia is the biggest cell phone manufacturer today."

"Yes, but they are doing it all wrong."

I guess this is what all Microsoft people must be feeling too.


Also: You need to know what is problem in somebodys phone when it stops working / works wrong way. Also, you need to know how to fix it. And you must have connections, that can deliver phones with serious discount or even free.

If you can't do any of mentioned above, you're an asshole.

My N93 keeps turning itself off. Could you please fix it? I mean, you're the cellular guy, right?

Jasmo: haven't had that for a while... But then again, I like showing people functions of the phones they didn't know existed! :-)

Although I work for a much smaller company than Nokia or Microsoft, I get similar comments concerning my field of work and related matters.

Happens to everybody, I guess. I'm responsible, for some reason, for the telemarketers who sell our magazine. Or any magazine. Is your daily newspaper clueless? Well hell, blame any journo you meet, it's his fault anyway, somehow.

Heh, I guess this is true. It's interesting to be working in an emotional industry.
