There are two kinds of people, the ones who understand computer stuff a little too well (the techie kind) and others who are complete noobs. Good thing for the newbs is that there are techies to always sort you out. Of course that always comes with a look of condescendence and snide remarks.

That aside, we can’t deny that life would be pretty impossible without your office IT support guy or that techie friend. After all there’s only so many times you can hit restart and expect a miracle.

This Techie Day, we’d like point out the love-hate relationship we share with them. If you’ve had techie struggles, then you’ll relate to this too.

computer won't start

ITsplaining is a thing

When they try explaining in terms of html div, xyz, wtf, nvm….

Clearly they think very little of you if they think you’ve not already hit restart.

Their incognito abilities

Isn’t it odd that they’re always around and then that one day you need them, they seem to have disappeared.

Your constant paranoia about your browsing “history”

If they wanted to know your browsing history, chances are they’d already know.
