That is... sad.
I write code for a living becuase I love turning someone else's logic into a digital system. The process of understanding someone else's workflow, making a digital representation of it, and making it more efficient and easier for people to use is actually something I pride myself on. Its probably similar to all you lawyers trying to come up with great arguments to sway a jury. Sometimes just being able to do what you do very well makes you happy. It does for me.
I wrote a system to help streamline commercial office space management for the property owners. Most people would find that incredibly boring, but I really enjoyed deconstructing their logic and building a system that basically eliminated the need for paper or faxing, and provided digial recordkeeping for every deal they've ever made.
