Today I discovered that I have a reputation in my community. I don't know what I did to earn this reputation, but I've got it. It's similar to one I had when I worked, but there I know what I did.
I got a call this afternoon from one of my neighbors. She was having trouble with her computer and her husband suggested she call me. This was not the first time someone has come to me with a computer problem.
I didn't know what to tell her. I really don't know that much about fixing computers. She was having trouble connecting with aol. I tried my connection, but that was OK. She said once before she had this problem and unplugged her computer and reconnected it, correcting the problem. Because of my experience two weeks ago, I couldn't tell her to do it again. Since my son, in Seattle, takes care of any problem I have, I gave her the name of a neighbor who had someone come to her home for her computer.
When I worked, all I had to do when someone had a computer problem was touch the equipment. They said I had healing hands.
