I know your errr..pain Churichubs!!!
I went to school for web design...somehow got a job in tech support, and now I'm an IT manager, who is suppose to know EVERYTHING about the firewall, the network, emails, internet, computers, printers, phone systems, etc, etc etc etc.
Even iTunes...heck, I just got my first iPod for Christmas, so I'm just learning about this "Pay for music downloads thing"
If its Microsoft related, I just go to their support site. When I find a general question I can't answer, I go to www.tek-tips.com
. It covers a whole bunch of topics that can sometimes take time on google. If its not there though I'll google it.
Yes, though, anytime there is something wrong in the house...I'm the fix it. I set up B's Playstation (ok he did help in the end :rollseyes
and I was asked to fix the humidifier etc. For some reason he thinks I Have an "Engineer's mind". Nooooo...I did not go to college to be an engineer, so therefore I don't think like one.
Oh and Dad is now giving me payback. All the questions that I asked him as a kid (he use to work for a major IT firm), are now all coming back to haunt me.
I've accepted it though. It's just something you have to accept being in IT. I'm sure doctors suffer the same thing..."I know you're a foot doctor, but can you take a look at my son's ear? I think its infected".
Oh and those that don't know much, well I begin by saying "OK class, let's learn about printers today. Repeat after me: DEE-FAULT PRIN-TER"
*mimics puppet hands* "dee-fault print-er"
