I have never worked in tech, but I've been in tech-adjacent fields and had a board of directors full of techies. I know the feeling. My zinger is the story of the post-IPO tech guy who actually told me, "Call me Uncle Dick" because he was old enough to be my dad. I blinked in surprise but I made it a point to always just call him Dick.
