Is it just me or are these not funny? I like to pick on users as much as the next IT professional, but so many of these sound like the urban legends of the IT world.

I'm trying to come up with some funny stories of my own, but I'm struggling. I remember the lady that set her coffee on top of our AS/400, but that was more cringe inducing than funny.

Another lady was mad because the replacement for her corded mouse, a wireless mouse, would slide off her angled keyboard tray. Sorry we couldn't bend the rules of gravity for you there. That story was more about how to deal with a difficult users. This lady was very direct and I had to be blunt/tough with her right back. That's just the way she worked.

I'll think on this some more and maybe I can recall an actual funny one.

  1. I once had a user complain that her computer was malfunctioning totally. Nothing worked. The only thing we changed was the blue Windows XP desktop background to a green one with the company logo. :)
