I think part of the problem is the IT world in itself is just not that exciting. I can tell you it is without a doubt a thankless job. I mean sure, you get thanked when you fix something, or create a new application for someone, but then it is turned right back around and put into the point of 'ok now heres what we need to do next'.
I personally believe its because we are detached from the actual business (whatever it may be). We provide the tools, but never get to use them in a functioning environment to take care of the 'real' customers *the ones paying money for stuff*. Even this breaks down farther; you may create websites to whom someone pays money for it. But you leave the website once you have delivered it and come around to it again only when they need an update/fix.
I dunno. Maybe we just bitch to much :x lol
I find it interesting because I never felt this way in the many factory jobs I had. Even working at fedex ground, that job sucked, but was fun because it was nothing but a constant competition of numbers each and every single day. I didn't have time to be bored.
I am no slacker, I just don't love what I do (which is inevitable for all jobs). We have a huge task we have to get done in the next month, as in 50 hours a week huge.
Though I do agree with you on the rest.
