Man's Coworker Calls Herself His Work Wife, Gets Booted From Baby Shower

It sounds like this guy's coworker was on some kind of wildly inappropriate mission to stir things up in his marriage, in a way that would create conflict between him and his wife. Especially considering the fact that his coworker had the audacity to continue cracking the "work wife" jokes along with other even more inappropriate jokes. It seems like the only viable option was to kick her out of the baby shower.

As for the IT guy misunderstanding the bad mouse report, it can happen to the best of us. Sounds like he was merely caught up in all of his company's nonsense. For another tech support tale, check out the time that an owner fired the whole IT department, and the sabotage that ensued

Supervisor Demands Employee Use Lint Roller Before Meeting

It sounds like this supervisor had their hands full when it came to trying to enforce some kind of universal standard for how employees should present themselves at virtual meetings. These are strange and tumultuous times, no doubt. And some folks are certainly having a harder time muddling through this time than others. With that being said, it sounds like Annie might've pushed the boundaries a bit too far, in terms of what the company expected from her. But you be the judge on whether or not this supervisor was ultimately in the wrong.

Programmer Humor For The World's Tech Wizards

We're well aware at this point that the folks in this world who work in tech support or just the IT department in general really do hold the keys to the kingdom in some sense. With that being said, tech support deals with all kinds of mind blowing acts of cluelessness from paid professionals that seemingly fell through the cracks on some of the most basic technological knowledge. It could be a scenario where you find yourself being the IT guy who is dealing with a professor that doesn't understand how internet browsers work. That kind of daunting realization requires nothing short of a saintly patience to be able to move forward in the troubleshooting process without losing grip on your sanity altogether.

Or, maybe you're another one of those lucky IT guys who has to calmly walk a company's CEO through how to reboot a computer. Yes, these people really exist. You never know what you might encounter while you muddle through your job in the tech support world. The stories we're able to enjoy from an established subreddit like "Tales From Tech Support" though are eye-opening tales about just how lost some of the world's poor souls are, for when it comes to navigating the use of their computer or other pieces of technological equipment.

Maybe some of the most grim stories from the tech support world will manage to make you feel better about your moments of profound confusion when trying to use your work device. Some people's brains just operate at a frequency where they're completely not tuned into how to use a fancy computer. Perhaps, this is the inevitable collective manifestation of technology continuing to evolve at such a rate that the older generations especially, are pretty much helpless in their pursuit toward getting the most out of their fancy computers, tablets, phones etc. Seems like a reasonable enough assumption to draw. You very well might have fond memories of trying to explain to a parent how they can turn off their iPhone, or change the input on a TV.

But alas, we're straying off the topic of programmers explicitly. Programmers are definitely the backbone of many esteemed companies. They're out there in the pits of the coding world, providing the infrastructure necessary for a company to keep up with these fast moving technological times. With that being considered, it should come as no surprise that programmers are regularly pushed to their breaking point in terms of the kinds of unbelievably clueless questions they field on a daily basis. And these same programmers are furiously working away at all kinds of projects that many of us couldn't hope to understand the first thing about. Maybe we're just gradually sliding into a reality where everyone's going to need to know how to code at some level. The skill itself seems to continue to skyrocket in value, and more and more it's as if people that are able to code have some kind of golden ticket for when it comes to locking down the next promising job opportunity. All in all, these gems from the world's fed up programmers should certainly get the laughs going for anyone who has ever dabbled in the dark art of coding.
