Yup. It's why I roll my eyes at "teach everyone to code!" initiatives -- if you ever HAVE taught coding, you'll be stunned at just how large a proportion of the population simply can not think through a problem let alone describe a solution. Including a DISTURBING number of "professional" "programmers".

(And most lawyers -- contracts are just programs written in English.)
