Hmm.. you've not worked at my place then.
 
We have certain developers who make themselves feel dumb when you present them with a clean API that is expressive and testable. Unit tests are viewed with suspicion and not regarded as useful in any way, shape or form. Making an actual API to something is regarded as over-engineering by some. Interfaces, interschmaces.
 
When you're getting complaints about using a FirstOrDefault one-liner on an IEnumerable instead of a seven line foreach loop with an if inside then it's not you that's doing things wrong. If you're using generics and someone would rather you wrote a separate class for each generic type you need to handle, it's not you doing things wrong. If someone's objection to using interfaces is "I can't find the implementation", it's really not your fault.
