Being a father involves copious amounts of self-confidence.
Sometimes, though, that self-confidence can merge with other traits, such as arrogance and bloated self-regard.
I mention this, on Father's Day weekend, merely because a fine and erudite survey has revealed the Grand Canyon between dads' view of their tech prowess and their family's views of dad's tech prowess.
The survey, conducted on behalf of TeamViewer -- a company that stunningly provides helpful remote control software -- reveals that 93 percent of dads think they are the family's go-to guy for tech.
You will be stunned into solitary confinement when I tell you that a mere 21 percent of family members think this is true.
Indeed, 42 percent of these family members, so committed to the truth, offered that it is the son or grandson who is the repository of all thing technological.
11 percent mentioned that it was the daughter or granddaughter who was the family's tech queen.
Given that more than 50 percent said it was a fountain of youth upon whom they relied for technological salvation, the respondents then complained that, when PC problems arose, these young things weren't around or, sadly, were too busy to care.
