I forgot to address this one - I agree with you, Paulie. My in-laws think that I'm God's gift to computers, video recorders, dish TV systems, etc. Look people, I write database queries and python scripts all day. The only reason I'm more of an expert than they are is because I'm not worried that if I press the wrong button I'm going to cause the machine to explode!Friends, don't talk about computers around the dinner table. Please.
Another one that gets me - "Hey, you're tall. You must play basketball, huh?" Yes, I do. But if you're short I don't ask if you're a jockey. If you're fat I don't ask if you're a sumo wrestler. If you're out of shape and holding a beer, I don't ask if you're a bowler. Okay, this little rant probably should have gone in a different thread. Sorry. But I feel much better having gotten it off my chest.
