Joke's on him, one night consider me a "software fairy"

Coworker: "Your department is hardware, right?"
Me: "... Software. I'm a software engineer."
Coworker: "I'm fairly certain that we don't have a software department"

Where does he think software comes from, the Software Fairies?

Ramona V. Flowers: What kind of tea do you want?
Scott Pilgrim: There's more than one kind?
Ramona V. Flowers: We have blueberry, raspberry, ginseng, sleepy time, green tea, green tea with lemon, green tea with lemon and honey, liver disaster, ginger with honey, ginger without honey, vanilla almond, white truffel, blueberry chamomile, vanilla walnut, constant comment and... earl grey.
Scott Pilgrim: Did you make some of those up?

Ramona V. Flowers: This is good garlic bread.
Scott Pilgrim: Yeah, I think garlic bread would have to be my favourite all-time food. I could eat it for every meal. Or just constantly, without stopping.
Ramona V. Flowers: Then you'd get fat.
Scott Pilgrim: No, why would I get fat?
Ramona V. Flowers: Because bread makes you fat.
Scott Pilgrim: Bread makes you fat?

"Anniversaries ARE special, Blue."
