Gotta thank NCIS for this wonderful television moment. Sure, we're not expert hackers either, but we know that stopping a hacking attempt is more complicated than throwing as many hands at the keyboard as possible and making it go clickity clack. It's not a piano. And who knew the unstoppable defense against hacking was simply unplugging your monitor?

Guy "Builds Computers" For A Living, Completely Destroys Cheap Computer

If there's one major takeaway from this tech support tale it's that just because you can build a PC doesn't necessarily mean that you know how the computer works. One can only begin to imagine the amount of hot flashes of embarrassment that this dude must've been bogged down by after realizing that he'd literally engineered the downfall of his cheap brand name computer. Like, he literally just created destruction where there otherwise would've been none to have been had. Oh well. You live and you learn. For another ridiculous tech support tale, check out this CEO who thought his computer had been hacked, and then proceeded to learn how a computer works

Harsh Moments of Technological Gore

There are two kinds of device owners, people who revere their laptops like a hollow Easter bunny made of flammable glass, and the other ones. The ones who store pieces of bologna in disk trays and drill speed holes in their keyboards, or people like this lady who claimed her computer was losing files, but was actually just deleting them. So naturally, tech support has to face some waking nightmares.

Angry Systems Manager Learns He Engineered Own Nightmare

We've all lost some work to the fates of computer junk, but usually we have the benefit of blaming the system we're using. We get to say "damn this program, I thought I had that crap saved but it's done screwed me over again!" But not this time. IT gets some characters, like this guy who thought he knew better than IT but learned otherwise.

Tech Support Has To Explain What Different Computers Are

Sure a desktop file can definitely look like a link that anyone can access, but that doesn't make it so. This employee shut down a ridiculous request with an extremely clear metaphor. Tech support has to face some real wildness in the form of harsh moments of technological gore as well as bluffing Karens and customers who don't understand what "wireless mouse" means.

Lady Buys Wired Mouse, Is Angry It Isn't Wireless

Tech support has to field some of the least tech-savvy people on the planet, like it's literally their job to help people who can't figure this stuff out. Technology is hard to grasp, but that's becoming less of an excuse when computers have been pretty ubiquitous in homes and offices for going on 30 years now. This difficulty leads to some absolutely absurd moments like people not realizing they're deleting all their files or Karens who try to bluff their way through the system. Sometimes the systems themselves are absurd, like this IT guy who learned a machine was stuck on "explode."

Employee Is Stalled for 4 Hours Over "Broken Mouse"

It's okay to not be great with computers. Most of us don't know how to put together a computer. But when it gets to the point that you're calling tech support because you didn't know that a computer has to be turned on? That's when it should be okay to ridicule you and whoever trained you. For a triumphant tale of IT, here's one where a horrible business Karen got booted by an IT employee.

Ridiculous Moments of Tech Illiteracy

Sure, we're not all geniuses with computers. But at this point in time, when computers have been a necessity for most households and workplaces for a few decades, it's a little ridiculous when someone doesn't know that you can't print a clickable link. Tech support gets some ridiculous requests, and some of them are even mean, like this Karen who had her bluff called and had her website deleted.

Tech Memes for the Computer Fiends

This one goes out to the heroes of every office, school and setting in need of general administration. The computer savvy, the IT people, the tech support and tech workers who know more about computers than everyone else and make Karen from accounting and Dave from sales look like the useless cave people that they are. But honestly, if you know literally anything about computers you'll probably get most of these. For more, here are excruciating moments of tech support gore as well as the story of a tech support worker whose manager threw out 40 computers not knowing what they were.
