Yes, I know that I'm the best there is in my field. And yes, I don't mind being given the most difficult problems to solve. It's a boost to my ego that I can handle things that no one else can.
But do run in and interrupt me every 10 minutes to inquire how it's going. That helps. Or even better, hover behind me, advising me at every keystroke. That helps immensely.
Do you remember that I am the best in my field or are you suffering from short term memory loss? There are cures for that, it's called amputation.
Note to self: What would free me from having to work under such fools? Preferably something that won't result in my being sent to a penal colony.
