Random Person: So What do you do for a living?
Computer Tech: I work on computers & servers.
Random Person: Oh cool do you think you could help me with this database?
Computer Tech: I don’t work on databases, I don’t even know them that well.
Random Person: But you said you work on computers right? You must not be very good at your job then.

Random Person: Eyes glaze over and begins talking about something totally different.
