    I work for county govt .. one of the supervisors brought his PC in .. it "fell of a chair" ... he's missing half the fucking screws that hold the case together. He's missing 2 of the 4 screws to the LCD and the ineternal screws that hold the keyboard down are missing?! WHAT?! ARE YOU KIDDING?? DROPPED!!

    "Yeah they must have fallen out"

    This guy is such a fucking douche nozzle it's not even funny.

    I work in the tech support lab at my university for students. We warranty repair on Lenovos and Macs only, but we do software fixes(i.e. virus etc.) on other computers. You wouldn't believe the excuses we get sometimes for that shit being there. :rofl:

    I'm fortunate in that regard. When I tell someone either at my office or in my family that something they're doing is causing a problem, either they stop doing it or they assume the risk.

    life as tech support staff sucks...
    I used to work part-time as tech support at a call centre.
    Sometimes, I get so pissed off at an moronic user that I would secretly wish that the PC would just explode in his face and kill the idiot instantly.

    oh look.... it worked.

    Our lawyers here are just the opposite, they try to open EVERYTHING in Word!! that's fine if it's an office document ... this asshole was trying to open a digitally recoded interview. He thought he could open the audio file and Word would just show the shit in plain text. They think the only way to browse the network is thru the Word open file menu. Fuckers. :rofl:

    I'm so glad I got out of the of game years ago. I used to be accosted at all family gatherings. The worst for me were the know it alls who argued with me after asking a question. Leave me the hell alone if you don't trust my answers.

    It was fun working at a place with a golden image for the pcs. When someone fcked of up we could just whack it instead of fixing what they broke. It was so much more painful for them.

    The worst thing to is that where I work in my residence hall. My co-workers found out I was an IT major(computer science), thus ASSUMING that I was the god of computers or some kind of all-knowing tech being after that. Now they have been giving out my number to other students and I actually had people calling me about their computer problems when I had no clue who they even were.
