Sunday Funnies – A Day In The Life

What I say: I’m a computer support technician.

What people hear: I can resolve any tech issue you have or ever will have on any machine that exisits in the universe. I am an expert on every operating system and software application ever written.  I am jacked into the Matrix at all times. I am an IT god – look upon me with awe.

What I mean: Sometimes I try to fix a problem with a computer and when it doesn’t work, I silently cry. When it does work, most of the time I don’t know why it worked. Often, the same solution will work the next time, but sometimes not. I don’t know why that happens either.  People are always amazed when I fix their computer, and think I am a genius.  I’m not so sure about that.  But thanks anyway.
