I manage *$#%! programmers

A friend of mine sent me the following cartoon.    It reinforced what a software manager told me,  “I don’t manage programmers, I manage freakin prima donnas!!”  He was discussing his trials and tribulations of managing a technical team.  A prima donna is the first lady of the opera.  Prima donna’s are egotistical, unreasonable, and they have a high opinion of themselves.   The term is used to describe a vain, obnoxious and temperamental person who, although irritating, cannot be done without.  Sound familiar?
