Tech Support Calls Karen's Bluff, Deletes Her Website

Well, that is what she wanted, right? After a long stretch of bullying and threats, this employee finally called Karen on her word and got rid of her account. IT workers receive some ridiculous requests on a day-to-day basis, and that's when they're not even dealing with a malicious and absurdly demanding Karen.

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.

IT Guy Performs Printer Exorcism and It Works

People have such a limited understanding of technology that the office tech support person can seem like a literal godsend. IT has to deal with some of the worst tech support gore around, and managers who don't know what computers are. This guy had to deal with a problem printer, and used an unorthodox method.

Patient IT Worker Helps Customer Figure Out The Idiotic Reason Her Computer Won’t Work

We all have severe lapses in observation from time to time but damn, Karen. What can we say? At least she figured it out sooner than later. The devil's in the details. This isn't a rare phenomenon, and some people have worse technical skills than others. It's pretty common knowledge that people have a pretty hard time with computers.
