Came across this really stale joke, but it resonates my view of how sometimes we tend to exaggerate the issues we are dealing with. As I mentioned earlier that IT people take themselves and their work too seriously. I would not rule out the possibility that sometimes we manage to reach the level this joke talks about.

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband. Suddenly her husband burst into the kitchen. "Careful ... CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my GOD! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my GOD! HERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful ... CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when u're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!"

And most of the times, when fried eggs are done, there will be congratulatory stuff about doing a great job sticking it out when it was required ;-)
