We'll Always Need Ditch-Diggers

I completely agree with this. I hate it when people (usually white-collar workers) look down upon those that cook their food at a restaurant, or build the roads they drive their nice cars on, or hook up the pipes that transport the crap they crap. They're people - they're doing a job, and they may or may not like it. Just because it doesn't involve writing code or having big dreamy-dream in a white tower office somewhere doesn't make it any more or less important. It annoys me when I got to a restaurant and the person I'm with won't even acknowledge the waiter/waitress with "thank-yous" or just plain talking to them like they're human.
