Working in Tech Support you get to know every type of Tech Guy, and one of those is the OG Tech Guy. These would be the people who began supporting computers during the ‘80’s and ‘90’s, at least.

Back then computers were the stuff of legend. Hollywood drove this narrative with systems like HAL from 2001, or the WOPR from War Games. Computers were a new force in the universe, and those who knew how to control them were GODS, and many of them behaved accordingly, and having once been allowed to get away with this attitude, still act the same way.

The main problem that the OG Tech Guy is facing these days is waking up to the realization that, in an increasingly secular society no one gives a shit.
