Our IT guy sucks! Never shows up when he is called, only unexpectedly when no one is here! Not a SINGLE computer/printer/machine fully works in our office and when he DOES show up, he blurts codes into the air as to why "the server is having issues". I don't give a fuck why the server is having issues, our CEOs can't even print and scan documents because our IT guy is such a lazy idiot! Fix the fucking server, printer, scanner, that's what you have been hired to do! The only reason he still has a job is he's fucked our system so badly it would cost way more to start over. So sick of this shit!
So my computer was screwing up and making a loud racket. Our IT guy came in, pulled a Fonzie, and hit the computer with his fist. The result was a puff of smoke coming out of the computer, and the computer shutting off never to come on again. Well done, sir. Idiot.
Our IT guy who is the manager of IT was asked a question why do phones have IP addresses on them in a company meeting with the entire company (quarterly meeting) his assistant over heard and while the IT manager was fumbling with words, his assistant said the phones have ip addresses because they are voip lines and they allow us to have accountability, recording, and immediate record search for every single device. needless to say the it manager was fired immediately on the spot in the middle of the company meeting and the it assistant is now the new it manager. talk about big company news...
I am the IT Guy at my company. I literally spend 7 out of the 8 hours of my day watching movies and posting on Facebook. I'm telling you kids, go to school to be an IT Guy, $50k to watch movies is a pretty sweet gig.
So, this morning I was at the gym and saw our IT guy on the treadmill, decked out in jeans and a flannel shirt. Good for him! However, later this morning I passed him in the hall, wearing the same outfit, complete with sweat stains. What a wonderful smell!
Our new corporate policy is to call help desk for any and all issues so they have a record, which I understand. The only problem is I called last week about my keyboarding dying and I was on hold for 20 minutes, and when I finally got someone on the phone, they said they had no idea what the problem was and I would need to talk to my manager. I literally got up, walked 50 ft to where the IT guy was sitting, and he gave me a new keyboard without issue. There seems to be something wrong with this workflow... just sayin.
Our IT guy kicked what he thought was an empty box in the break room, turns out it had a new monitor for the sales manager. Well, it DID have a new monitor for the sales manager, now it has many pieces of a monitor.
Both of our IT guys took vacation to camp out for 3 days in preparation for the new Twilight movie. We are now without an on-site IT person for the next few days, but I'm sure nothing will go wrong. If they weren't grown men in their 30's it wouldn't be so bad, like if they were 13 year old girls or something.
Have you ever seen the movie PCU where the kid is walking through the computer lab and catches his leg on the huge mess of power cords? Our IT guy did pretty much the same thing. He was not paying attention as he walked through the office and snagged his leg on the main power and data cables that come up through the floor. He not only knocked out power to the entire office of 150 people, it apparently also fried the main phone hub back in the IT room. I won't lie, I laughed, even though he technically is my boss.
Our IT guy got drunk last weekend and could drive. Since the bar is within walking distance of the office, he decided it best to just stumble to the office and take a nap to sober up. They found him the next day sleeping under the stairwell. Needless to say we're getting a new IT guy.
