Ruined for life

We keep having conversations like this:

Lindsey: Why doesn't the thingamabob work?
Jesse: Because Perl is bad. You gave it thus-and-such and it was expecting so-and-so.
Lindsey: That sounds like a pass-by-reference versus pass-by-value problem!
Jesse: You are such a CS major. There, I committed a fix.
Lindsey: Okay, but I don't understand about the other doohickey.
Jesse: Lindsey. You have to understand that Perl is very, very bad.

Why didn't they teach us bad programming languages in school? That would have been more practical.
