Being programmer is tough

He was working on script. Simple one but with an input on insanely large scale of obscure financial data. No one was even sure that data could compute. But it (and he) had no other option except to succeed.

And then the Boss came.

- Hey, why aren’t you working!?

- Wha!?.. I am!

- You don’t! *angrily points to multicolored lines of code on screen* You think I can’t recognize text file when I see it?

I wish this wasn’t real story. :)
