Dear Family: I Am Not A Computer Expert

I am the go-to guy my family, um, well, goes to when something happens to their computer. This causes many problems.

I work on a computer but I am not a computer expert.

My nephew just got a new Sony Vaio for Christmas, and I’m waiting for the "can you come over and set up/fix/get rid of the virus/tell us how to plug it in" phone call from my brother-in-law or sister. And I’m always happy to do it. But I think they assume I know more about computers than I do. Yes, I certainly know more than they do and can usually help with a small problem or with advice (my advice is usually something along the lines of "you should buy a Mac"), but they seem to think that because I write on the web every single day that I’m somehow a tech expert.

This would be like calling up Rachael Ray to fix your television. Hey, she’s on TV all the time, she must know how to fix them.

  1. Strange as this is, I get it too. Just because I’m online all day every day (can you say addicted?) people think I know what I’m doing. HA! If they only knew. 🙂
