Every family has that one member who knows the most about tech. That doesn’t mean that you know a LOT about it, it just means you happen to know more than everybody else, which makes you the inevitable go-to when something goes wrong.
In my family, that’s me. And it’s a strange feeling, because while I’m interested in all things tech, I’m not an expert at all, so I screw things up as often as I fix them.
I can’t imagine how crazy it must be to be an actual IT professional and look at all the stupid things people let happen with their valuables.
Of course, I don’t have to imagine, because Reddit has that documented quite well. Observe.
10. Bugging out
[This is not a joke – if you’re bothered by insects, don’t click play on this video.]
9. Assault and battery
Even if you’re not using it at the moment, take the dead batteries out of your stuff.
Corrosion is a horror show to try to repair.
8. The signal
The antenna I understand but the rest of the set up is baffling.
Sure, and not even slightly a fire hazard.
6. Smoke and mirrors
It ain’t good for people, either.
5. By the numbers
You dummy, you’re supposed to use it so spell “8oo8S.”
4. Just nasty
This is the stuff that nightmares are made of.
3. Water, water everywhere
Sure you don’t, Kyle.
2. All better
It doesn’t really have a top or a lap anymore, but otherwise it’s good.
1. Just in case
Nothing against gardening but woof what a misuse.
God bless our brave IT professionals.
