You'll Also Be Required To Purchase A Brown Corduroy Jacket With Patches On The Elbows
Brings back memories, like a particularly garlicky meal does.
I was the manager of a very young Project Manager a while back. Nice kid. He was fresh out of school, and he was a freaking pinball wizard with AutoCAD. AutoCAD is a drawing program used by architects now. Very powerful; the full version is incredibly daunting when you first look at it. He would work the mouse and keyboard like he was playing Halo, which he also liked to do. I was in awe of that kid.
His mother needed a bathroom addition, and he had never designed a residential anything. It was all commercial work in school and at our job. As a favor, I drew him a few pages of drawings that he needed to give to the building inspector to get the building permit. He sat there dumbfounded looking at them, because they were drawn by hand, in pencil, and he'd never seen such a thing. He thought I was freaking Merlin.
People still do things with their hands from time to time. Try it, it's fun.
