What Do Tech Guys Look Like?

Last night I was commiserating with a fellow information worker. She had been dissed by a computer salesperson.

“It happens to me, too,” I said. “The last time I bought a computer, the guy offered to come to my house and plug it in for me.”

My friend remembered that occasion. “You forgave him later, when he mentioned that he lived in a dorm room.”


“It’s because we don’t look like tech guys,” I suggested.

I look like someone’s mom. She looks like a young Catherine Zeta-Jones.

We thought of some of the tech guys we work with who do look like tech guys.

“You have to be 23 years old and wear polo shirts,” I suggested.

“No way! You have to look tired and schlumpy because you’ve been up most of the night working on a web site.”

Actually, I can do that.

    It may be different for you and your friend. But when people start automatically assuming that I work in the computer tech/web field I know it’s time for me to start looking for a new wardrobe.
