You don’t know how lucky you are.
You have a Computer Geek in your realm.
You have that Special Someone who is always there for you, for free, to fix, well, just about anything and everything that happens to your computer. It doesn’t matter if your machine is running Windows or Macintosh, chances are that your resident Geek is there for you. You call. You email. You instant message.
They are your personal “always-on-call” computer “fixers;” your personal helper with All Things Computer. Broken Printer? Screen “not-responding”? Spill coffee on your keyboard? Computer “locked-up,” or just “not working” the way you want it to? You call your resident Geek.
You don’t pay them. You don’t ask them. You just call them – and expect the Geek to be there for you. And, of course, you accept nothing less than, “problem solved.”
In this short book, I’m going to tell you what it’s like to be Your Geek.
The text message-alert beep woke me from a deep sleep at an hour that was somewhere between very late and super early. The dog looked up at me as if asking, “Who do you think died?” The message-sender was my niece, and she was, “In Trouble.” I was up and had the light on before I could get more details.
If only she had bothered to tell me that the virus she was suffering from was only on her computer . . .
This is about what you put them through, the pressures that they feel, and most importantly, how completely unthankful you truly are. You’ll hear many real-life examples. I guarantee you, you will read familiar stories.
Yes, I’m talking to YOU, the one who wakes up your Geek before you even bother to try fixing the issue yourself!
Read on. See what it’s like for the other side; the side you depend on, the side you demand results from – and the Geeks for whom you are simply thankless!
