To programmers: Thoughts on your builders?

In my experience, me and my fellow programmers had to switch teams 2 times because the builders were doing absolutely nothing. I would like to hear about your stories about your builders. Please do not judge or tease other posts. Please do not spam. Please do not flag unnecessarily.
P.S. I feel that the last part is necessary due to events on other posts.
P.S.S. Please tell me if I missed a topic while searching for existing topics about the same things.

I love my builders with everything I am, but they can still be the most annoying people ever… Like they have no idea what symmetry is

My builder and I work perfect together. No problems whatsoever, it is pretty surprising.

Most of the time the builder/programmer relationship is pretty good, but sometime we don’t understand each other’s roles well. It helps to take a few hours to sit down and try to understand everything the other people in your team are doing. I’ve found that a little time spent trying to understand the other people in your team and how they work can go a long way.

Our team’s builder is awful, she’s just the absolute worst. Keeps trying to build lift structure out of plastic and dyes gears for no reason.

Our builders are absolutely terrible. One of them is addicted to baseball and the other one is addicted to golf. They are also terribly unfunny and super buff.

I am the builder
In order to foster a good relationship with my programmer and to have the robot actually move I watch it like a hawk ready to announce a mechanical failure

Wait until you hear about the 5th secret element:
Touching grass

Rumor has it none of us are able to obtain such a powerful element :frowning:

I did it once, it is like dipping in the River Styx. It comes with great pain. I also thought the 5th element was cheese.
