It's not easy for an IT person to be at department meetings. Every time someone has to do something on the computer, they look to you, to ask about what they are doing is okay. When they have to blow up the text in Excel, they just have to ask you how they do it, even if they've done it a thousand times before.
Since I'm an It person I can say and do thing the others can't because it's me. So when my boss's boss says, something about a program that’s really complicated, "you just do it like you play a videogame" I can slip further down in the seat, hiding behind my cup of coffee while my face blushes and say "a videogame? I have noooo idea what that is!" and make everyone laugh and they won't mind.
I must say that I rather enjoy being a computer nerd, it allows me to be who I am without anyone complaining. They know, IT people often are a bit different, so it's commonly accepted that we say and do things differently. I don't really know why it is like this, maybe it's because we can take away their internet, or maybe we have good humor. I don't know, but I enjoy it!
