You're introduced to someone by a friend. The smalltalk begins and you know what's coming.
They ask, "What do you do?" The friend who introduced you tries to understand your explanation yet again.
You say, "Um, I do Drupal." They stare back blankly as you continue.
"...it's a content management system - you know, a CMS?"
You shudder as you try again, "...it's kinda like WordPress?" Still nothing.
Eventually you give in and explain it in a way that even your grandmother could understand: "I build websites."
