There is nothing so demoralizing as calling a computer specialist to your home, then opening the door to find the компьютерщик (computer guy) isn’t even old enough to shave.
Actually, that’s not true. The really demoralizing bit is when you spend ten minutes explaining what didn’t work, no matter what you did, and the kid listens patiently then flicks a single switch and says: “Вот так” (Like this.)
You sign to yourself: Я технологически отсталая (I’m technically backward.)
