I don't think that I will ever get tired of being the "computer guy". I find joy in fixing other people's blunders. We send my daughter to a lady that runs a day care out of her house. My wife has become buddies with the lady, and volunteered me to fix a computer problem. I went over to her house and asked her what had happened. She said that she opened the task manager and just started closing out processes because the computer was getting slow, and now the desktop was gone and she couldn't get it back. She said she tried turning off the computer and it still wouldn't come back. You're going to laugh when I tell you what really happened...
The desktop was indeed gone. However, during her rampage of program closure, she closed explorer.exe. You'd think a reboot would fix that, right? Well, she had the computer setup so that when she hit the power button, the computer would sleep and not power down. When she started it back up, the screen would resume exactly where it was before. She told me she had another friend that knows computers fix her computer a while ago, and he changed the power settings. All I could do was laugh and tell her what she did wrong. I guess I like to laugh at other people's misfortunes.
