You know you've been hacking Perl for too long…

…when you're programming C and call a function that takes no parameters and forget the parentheses.

I had code something like mystream << myObject->GetAttribute; and the compiler complained that it didn't know what to do with this and asked me which overridden << operator it should use… of course, the one taking an tAttribute as its second argument!

Then I saw what was wrong and added the parentheses in GetAttribute(). Oopsie.
