Things That Will Make Any IT Person Cry

If you’re an IT person and have dedicated your life to fixing and maintaining computers, software, and so on, we have to apologize for what we’re about to show you, because we know it will hit you harder than anyone else. We’re sure you’ve seen it all in your line of work, but there are some people who have no idea how to take care of a computer or other bits of related hardware. It’s actually quite baffling that people don’t think there’s anything wrong with what they’re doing! We’ve a whole load of photos here showing flagrant crimes against tech. Take a look and see if you can keep a brave face!

You would want to wear gloves before touching this mess!

Seeing things bend that are not supposed to bend, makes us feel strangely uncomfortable…

This power outlet needs throwing away!

dirty extrension cable


Yuck! How do people let things get this bad? 

computer mouse built up dirt


This looks like someone sneezed with their mouth full of dinner, several times.

spilt on laptop


That looks like a nice smooth cut… not.

Uh, oh…

broken pins on computer cable


Oh, the annoyance felt when this happens is overwhelming! 

broken charger inside laptop


This makes us feel itchy. 

built up fur in computer tower dust


Why, just why?

horrible mouse connector


It amazes me how this next one has not started a fire yet! But also, how have they managed to hang it from the wall like that without it pulling the socket out?!
It really shocks us how unhygienic and plain dirty certain people are. Of course, it’s nothing to do with how clean, or unclean, people choose to be but doesn’t it just gross you out?
Because it would have been so difficult to put a chair, a box, or literally anything supportive underneath?

It takes minimal effort and a few minutes of your time to dust and wipe down your equipment. As with many other things in life, people who take care of their possessions tend to notice that they will last a lot longer! Dust spores in particular and terrible for both humans and computers.
Go ahead, flip the switch! 

If you recognize that your own stuff is similar to any of these images, get cleaning people!
Those fans DO NOT look sufficient! 

This is as wrong as a bone sticking out of a body. 

What a soldering mess we have here! 

We want to know who the genius that came up with this idea is?

Nothing wrong with this picture, nothing at all…

A customer brought this in explaining that there was a ‘small spark’. 3 hours later Apple quietly issues a recall for these chargers!

This poor, unfortunate soul took a tumble down some stairs. 

The lengths some people will go to are actually rather amusing…
