This time of year is Teacher's Appreciation Week and Administrative Professional Appreciation Day. I've always wondered- why is it that certain professions get appreciation days? There is no software developer appreciation day. I wish someone would buy me gifts and take me out to lunch just to say thanks for doing your job- the job that you are already getting paid to do. I don't mean this to be disrespectful to teachers or secretaries, i just wish i got appreciated too. Anyone else feel this way?
