Working in any department where you deal with people is a harrowing experience. When it comes to technology and technology repair, you also have to add in the fact that people’s experience and expertise levels are all over the board.

That strange mix of humanity that you find in pretty much any industry can keep things interesting – something these 14 techs know for sure.

14. Some thirtysomething finally got the last laugh.

He probably still thinks it’s funny, too.

Work for local high school, the disc drive wasn’t working. Probably been there since 2012

13. They’re going to need a whole new office.

I mean. Just burn it down.

Someone unplugged something and now the office internet doesn’t work…

12. Was he walking across a bridge?

Or perhaps riding a giraffe?

User “Dropped it walking to the car.” It came in the day after the Super Bowl.

11. He was either on drugs or just very dumb.

I’m honestly not sure which one would be better (or worse).

Customer came in with his iPhone, his glass cracked, he thought he could peel off the glass so he wouldn’t notice the crack anymore.

10. What is even happening here?

Is that the case? Or?

9. Why would you do this, though?

Like…was it not working, or you just thought it needed to be plugged in MORE?

8. Kids literally don’t deserve anything nice.

We should stop giving them nice things and expecting them to be better.

7. That’s definitely not how this works.

Any of it. Nothing.

“It didn’t plug in, so I bent the pins to make it fit.”

6. They just didn’t try plugging it into the right port.

You would have thought they would have tried all of the holes.

5. Those are not the sort of tips we like, friends.

Somebody lost their temper.


4. Nightmare. Fuel.

A few ants don’t freak me out, but a colony of anything will do the trick in a hot second.

Got a call from a local business that the Internet wasn’t working… Ant infestation will do the trick I suppose.

3. An advantage how?

On what planet do you need a lighter mouse?

My friend drilled holes in his mouse to make it lighter so it would give him an “advantage”.

2. At least it’s an easy fix.

I’d hate to be the person who called, though.

Makes sense

1. A screw hole for what, though?

He’s not screwing anything in…

My grandpa thought his headphone jack was a screw hole.

I’m dying, y’all. I couldn’t do it.
