Coworker Disregards IT Guy's Advice, Fiery Mess Ensues

Some people are more stubborn than others, and sometimes that frustrating stubborn stance goes hand in hand with acts of stupefying, blind ignorance. Take this IT dude's coworker who decided to have nothing short of a hysterical meltdown over what she viewed as a faulty printer. Well, one thing leads to another and before you know it, she's created a fire in the office. To make matters more dramatic, she decided to put the fiery papers on the counter instead of into the sink. It sounds like logic was a lacking quality from the beginning in this tale of tech support.

Most Ruthless Rejections People Have Endured

Someone on AskReddit got a gnarly thread going about the most ruthless rejections that people have ever endured. Some of these are just plain old heartless.

Sometimes we can get a little carried away when it comes to embarrassing our friends. In this case we have one friend who decided to hatch a little plan to embarrass their influencer friend by intentionally letting them post a very dumb meme that they had no idea about. Suffice to say, the "influencer" and their lie that they decided to tell ended up looking very foolish. Maybe a lesson learned in there.

Regional Director Doesn't Understand Computer Reboot, IT Patiently Enlightens Them

The more tech support tales that we come across, the deeper our appreciation becomes for all the cluelessness that IT wizards encounter on a daily basis. They really cross paths with some folks that genuinely don't know how to turn off their computers. Take this regional director for instance. The poor tech support employee involved in the painstaking interaction is forced to patiently guide them through the proper way to actually reboot their computer. And for the record, no, a black computer screen does not necessarily mean that the computer is in fact off. 

Check out some more juicy tech support drama with this tech support employee who got fired and unfired on the same day. What a trip.

Woman's Tired Of Neighbor's Screaming Children, Wants To Blast Music

This woman moved into a new home and after meeting her new neighbor and determining that there'd be some loud kids stirring up all kinds of noise, she let the mom know that she'd probably just proactively try to drown out that noise with some sweet tunes. Apparently, the mom didn't take too kindly too this. It could be viewed as a potentially tough call on whether or not the music blaster's in the wrong. On the one hand, nobody wants to hear a relentless onslaught of kids being crazy loud, but the music might also only make the situation that much worse. You be the judge though, who's in the wrong here?
