Do you feel underappreciated?

Let me tell you guys a story-true story-about a guitarist I once knew. This guitarist was uber experienced gigging, recording touring, even earned an MFA in performance from I don't know some consrevatory or university. When he quit the business of gigging, recording and touring he got married, had kids and opened a very successful music shop selling guitars, basses and amps. He told me and I quote him "I hate drummers, have no use or desire to spend any time with a drummer since they're all conceited, self-important jerks". I did not admit to him that I played drums. I was afraid to tell him.

Have any of you met anyone like this?
Never, nor have i met a drummer that fits his description of them... sounds like yet another guy that let a woman and kids destroy all happiness in his life and is bitter now :(

I think it happens to a lot of people in all walks of life and many jobs. I have 15 years of service that just ended to prove it.
This is so true. I think if you are waiting for a pat on the back for a lot of things we do you are going to be disappointed. I doubt that is why we are doing what we do in the first place anyway. Keep that in mind and you won't be disappointed, bitter or angry.

If I'm playing with a group of guys and I get the tired old drummer jokes we've all heard a billion times, then I know I'm doing a good job and appreciated. As odd as that sounds. :)
