Being a contractor right now, the fact that one of the permanent is rather, let's average, is good for me, logically... It makes me look good!
I might have a different opinion here that the Contractors are smart people and those who are really good at doing things can only turn into Contractor as its more rewarding than the regular job and an average contractor would eventually start doing a job after sometime.

Despite that, I found it sometimes tiresome, it feels like he doesn't now how to read code and want me to do his work occasionally, when he got scared by some piece of code and also sometimes butcher perfectly fine code into a buggy monster, sigh...
That's one of the side effects of being a contractor as they expect you will have solution of every problem that they have created or not able to solve.

I'd call it an Art Thumbs Up | :thumbsup: so how do you balance it anyway Smile | :) .
You can have all the tools in the world but if you don't genuinely believe in yourself, it's useless.
