Lusers don't luse any less when you're a programmer.
Clairvoyancy is even more of a required skill than it is in sysadminnery.
Particularly when the specifications for a given task keep changing,
in some cases requiring starting the task over from scratch several
times, and then the luser complains when you don't meet the original
estimates of when the task would be completed.
