I once told a woman I was interested in that I was an Electrical Engineer....she asked me to replace a light switch in her apartment.

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!"

Is there a way to photograph a "blank stare"? When I send friends and family links to articles I've written and I tend to get some variation on "...I have no idea what you're saying, but..."

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