One of the nice things about having a computer genius for a brother is that I tend to only get called to help with computer issues by family members when he is unavailable. Usually it’s my dad and he’s yelling at me about his computer and my brother so I play the “if he can’t figure out, I have no clue” card.
Still, the interesting thing that occurs and has occurred more or less since my little bro started making a name for himself for his skills when he was in middle school is that I get phone calls and e-mails from people who aren’t blood asking me for my brother’s contact information.
If my brother ever decides to start charging these people – his coping mechanism is to ignore people who only want to abuse his friendship for computer support – perhaps I could ask for a cut of the profits.
