I wouldn't wish a COBOL career on my worst enemy.
What a god-awful mess.
And yes, I know how and why it came to be. And
all about legacy code bases and the high cost of
migration. I was forced to take cobol back in
1978, never attended a lecture, handed in all the
assignments, wrote the final, passed the course,
and promptly forgot the whole thing.
Still, what a god-awful mess :-)

Good thing Grace Hopper isn't around to read
I actually kinda liked COBOL; a lot of it was just
boilerplate after all...
