Geek Group Tell All: Funny Tech Stories

Thanks to TeamSugar user Girl C for submitting a hilarious story to our Funny Tech Stories group. Her story reminds me that while it's often easier to just take over and help someone fix their computer problems, there are some people that aren't worth reasoning with. Girl C shares:

"I'll start by saying my boss is a tool, and not a useful one! He's the kind of guy that hears a phrase and latches on to it and then uses it over and over without knowing it's meaning. This past month he learned about defragmenting the computer. Someone told him about it and now he 'needs' it done all the time. Today he called me into his office and said 'Uhh C, did you defrag my computer today?' Me, 'Yes.' He's made it part of my duties to do it to his computer daily! 'Well, it's running slow. Do you think I need to defrag it again?' I peered at his screen and he had about 30 different programs open, including several instances of Internet Explorer. I could either explain he's probably maxing out memory or I could just say yes. So I said yes.

Oh my god, how do you work for someone like that??? I might kill him. I don't have anything nearly as annoying as that. I do find that my clients will work themselves into such a frenzy that they are sure their whole department has a virus that is doing horrible things to their computer. While that isn't odd in most offices, it is when you only deal with Macs. "No Sally, you don't have a virus, that email bounce you got back is legit because you spelled the domain wrong"... I guess they keep me employed ;-)
