There aren't many things that you can do better than your parents when you're growing up, with the exception of masturbation and quoting Anchorman. One of the first skills you can surpass your parents in is computer savvy. At eight years-old you no longer need your parent's assistance to install new games. By time you're eleven, you notice that you can find things far faster online than your parents could ever hope to. Before you know it, you are on call 24/7 to fix any family computer problems. You find yourself dragged home early from Billy's house when your Dad can't figure out why TurboTax won't load.
Eventually, your parents will grow old and you may be called upon to take care of them. The first sign of this eventuality arrives at an early age when they become completely dependent on you when it comes to using the computer.
