I've been an analog engineer all of my life. Analog and mixed signals as of late. Whenever a layperson asks me what I do, and I answer I'm an electronic engineer, they respond with "I knew you were into computers!"

No matter what I told her, my mother-in-law told everyone proudly thatI fixed TVs for a living.
