What life is like for computer techies...

At least some times, it looks somewhat like the following video.

Some of you already know that I am a computer technician (also known as the "help desk") and I help all kinds of people at different levels of computer knowledge.


It seems most folks under 50 years of age can more easily grasp the idea of moving around in a computer environment. (Please note that I said MOST and not ALL.) The over 50 crowd, however, seems to have a bit more difficulty and to a computer nerd like myself, this video is how the questions seem like to me some times...



Don't get me wrong. I'm not one of those computer geek snobs that think that people who don't know how to use a computer proficiently are below me or something. I know of a few of those. I just find it amusing how some people are afraid of the computer as if it were a poisonous spider, or if by pressing one key they'll erase everything.

I understand it, though. I'm the same way about cooking...
