What is it with computer users?!?!?!?! I think I'm about to pop a blood vessel!

Argh! They sit there on the net, happily typing their e-mail address's into catologues, beauty websites etc etc (I work with a load of females and only a handful of blokes) and then they come moaning to me that they keep getting stuff about man juice pills and the everlaster in their e-mails!!

I nearly went skitso this morning, as I had my, I'd say 100th telephone call telling me they keep getting all these messages....I think I have a virus....what do I do....but it's so hard to delete them all, what if they are real....can I have a new e-mail address....can't you stop it

[:mad:] I tell you what, why don't you stop using your work e-mail address to sign up to 'lipstick tips of the week' and stop downloading webshots and we may get somewhere. Damn users.

The blue is coming out pink on the printer even though it's blue on the screen......oh, I never thought about the cartridge. [:cool:]

Once I drove a 400 mile round trip to flick a switch on the wall to turn the electricity on [:D] Oh the stick they got for that! Basically I had been there the previous week installing some software, the computer I was on, suddenly 'went down' so I had to go up to see what 'I had done'. Turns out, the electricity socket was switched off, what a bint!

I think it's time for me to find a new career!!

Yes that's true, but sooooooo annoying!!!

I actually start getting excited when we get a mass virus thats eaten half the data away. Or, one of the best ones is someone getting paper jammed real bad in the lasers, gives me something to take apart for a couple of hours [:D] That's how bad it's getting! I'm normally happy in my job, but today, ARGH!

Users crack me up, I have one guy here that when we deployed blackberry devices to everyone, asked if they charged via Bluetooth. [:D]

Their are others though who do stupid things such as put a blue wax-cube into the black slot on our Canon printer because they need something printed 'pronto' and then wonder why their document text is all in blue. [:$]

Totally, basically had to take the printer offline and leave it on a test print for ages!

I have loads of storys from when I did your job

1. why wont my laptop battery last an 8 hour flight

2. whys my laptop broken I only left ontop of my case on a
transatlantic flight (the baggage handlers must of dropped the case 100
foot )

3. But you must be able to make my phone as fast as the companys 155mbit backbone link

4. 1 user went throgh 4 hard drives in 3 months we found out he would regularily kick his machine

5, random voice ports on our telecoms switch blowing, found a director plugging his laptop into various sockets in his booth.

6. a salesman leaving the laptop in the comapny of his 2 year old and a biro (TFT screens dont like Biros)

7. An MD who insisted he had the Admin password for EVERYthing, one staurday he shut down a 1500 user Citrix Server

The most spyware i saw was on a sales directors laptop, avg found 46
viruses, spybot found .... 1256 pieces of spyware, and the scans and
clean ups took me 2.5 days

As an IT user I absolutely hate you gimps. Who the hell do you think you are asking me to book a request in when I can see you playing online doom and reading The Sun? And why do you all have such condescending atitudes, such bad breath and a tendency to look down women's tops when leaning over to press the reset button. You are all scum and to be honest nobody needs you, they should employ (real) professionals to initially set up the networks and then a monkey to advise users to reboot since that solves 99.999% of all problems.

DIE NOW YOU IT LOSERS...

LOL....'I have a problem with blah blah'....'yer, reset the comp, lovely sorted, bye'

It's true though a reset DOES solve 99% of problems guarenteed, and you know why, because us lovely gimps have set your computers up so well on the network that when you log in everything will be lovely again!

I love mandatory profiles, the feeling of power.

And as for looking down womens tops, I will look down any womens top if the chance arises, so long as they are in a decent age range [:D] Sadly, only a couple of here that I get that pleasure from and they 'get' computers anyway!

As IT support, we hate you users who can't figure out how to attach a document to an e-mail and call us to do stupid things like replace toners! I mean, who do you think you are! And stop trying to mess with things you don't know about!

[:D]

It's good to get the other side of the argument.

Right drop his port speed and I think an audit of his e-mail are in order [;)]

LOL yer, put him on a 10mb link, give him access to only MS Word and then, and this is the clencher.....go and re-arrange all his icons while he's away at lunch, he'll be stuck for days [;)]

I think the one thing that annoys me the most, is when you say 'click there.....no there, no....there, next to that icon...no.....OH FOR!!!! Let me do it!'

Or is it just me that works with users who can't see icons!?

Then there are the users that have those horrible sticky mice! Urgh, and those with their mouse cable so tightly wrapped round stuff that you can only move it an inch at a time, and they use it like that all the time!! LOL!
