    I kid you not, this is what it use to be like at my old job

    It is what it is like now sometimes too!

    That is why we get the ****s, its not that you the person we are speaking to are stupid, its just that when we weigh up the balance of the intelligence of the sum of the calls that we take, we can only conclude that the human race is in dire straights!

    usually there are service level agreements, and maintenance contracts. If so someone has to be available between the hours specified in the contract.

    At my old job you often missed out on lunch because you literally were unable to hang up the phone to put it on voicemal, it was seriously that bad!

    The only reason the IT guys need to weigh up the calls is that they are not smart enough to look around the room and realise the lack of intelligence that surrounds them.

    I was told yet again to restart my computer for a problem that had not gone away when i restarted it twice before that. They are like fish swimming around a fish bowl - look a castle, look another castle, look another castle.

    usually you get that kind of response from the IT department or lowly paid Desktop support techs.

    Again you are mistaking jobs!

    Application support is what I do at times here and did in my previous job, you rarely ever ask them to reboot unless you have asked someone to install something.

    The problems that require rebooting are generally due to Windows, and there is little the techie can do anyway, and 99% of users are happy if you at least get them to try something

    I had my computer in for repair and after 3 days I rang up to ask the helpdesk when it would be ready.

    The answer: I e-mailed you to pick it up yesterday!!!!!
