This is a question IT Support

Our IT support guy has been in the job since 1979, and never misses an opportunity to pick up a mouse and say "Hello computer" into it, Star Trek-style. Tell us your tales from the IT support cupboard, either from within or without.

Dear god, no!
I'm in IT support as a day job, there was always some stray neighbour/wife's friend etc wanting their virus-riddled computer looking at - until I started charging them just to assess the problems. Hey presto, no more queues of the bemused. Why do people assume 'cos it's your job you'll do jobs for them for free?

Anyhow, the ma-in-law, who is 72, bought a laptop & is now on Virgin wireless. Oh dear God, no!

My other half's in IT
but he stopped doing all the call-out "My cat was sick on the keyboard" jobs ages ago. His answerphone message says his business has stopped trading.

He still gets phonecalls. Argh.

I tend to just make up an excuse, like I haven't got time, or just say no. That way they know that I'm an ignorant cunt and stay away :)
