You work with computers.
Therefore you are an expert.

I often get calls from my father in law saying things like "why is the internet
broken?" (Translation: what have I got wrong in my email settings).

Every so often he gets a virus and loses a bunch of work.  He then rings me,
and moans that it's gone.  I ask him when he last backed up.  He says "Why
would I want to do that?".  Repeat ad nauseam.
