Be careful what you wish for

"There's an old story about the person who wished his computer were as easy to use as his telephone. That wish has come true, since I no longer know how to use my telephone."

Bjarne Stroustrup, inventor of C++. (Hat tip, Simon.)

Incidentally, The Profit Burglar once told me that the name "C++" is in fact an hilarious play on words because "++" is the C increment operator and can also be taken to signify its advance over that earlier language.
