25 Tech Fails That Tech Support People Are Bugged With | “Spilled Acetone on My Laptop and Now It’s Mocking Me”
Working in the IT and tech support department might sound like a chill high-end job but in reality, it isn't. Tech support employees have to deal will customers and clients who seek solutions to their nightmarish problems. The tech support job can easily be considered one of the most frustrating work ever because every day you will be challenged to develop your technical, analytical, business and interpersonal abilities. Without IT workers, we would have lost our way through technical jargon. So we skimmed the internet and stumbled upon some tweets and the subreddit of r/techsupportgore where we found dedicated posts about tech support professionals facing bizarre tech problems. From murky hardware fished out of the ocean to badly placed keys on a keyboard and some dumb individual using Clorox to clear the LCD screen, the list of hilariously bad tech issues seems never-ending. Here are 25 of the most nonsensical pictures which prove that working in the tech support sector can feel like hell but like most bad experiences, it can be meme-d about.
1. "Coworker said she would only accept an official Apple mouse so I dug this out of storage and left it on her desk"
2. "When you don’t listen to your parents when they tell you to keep the music down"
3. "Xfinity came out and installed cable in a new room. This is how they did it."
4. "Customer told me they were tired of hearing the vibrations"
5. Wall anchors falling off
6. "I've tried putting it in rice but it hasn't helped. Any idea?"
7. Structural cables peeking from the floor
8. The atrocious key placements
9. "Spilled acetone on my laptop and now it's mocking me"
10. Saddest blue screen ever
11. "Mullet PC, business in front and party in the back"
12. "Is this how monitor arms work?"
13. "The things you find working a helpdesk job at a failing University"
14. "Apparently putting maple syrup and a laptop in the same moving box is a bad idea."
