No doubt

by Oz_Media In reply to and how many

EMPLOYEES, the peons hired by the HR peons, are always thinking th ecompany woul dgrind to a halt without them, that they are the bread and butter etc. This is SO prominent in IT, it's pretty stupid actualy just how many IT staff members THINK they rnu the show just because their company decided to deploy a network that millions can operate and maintain just as well.

It's like a McDonalds employee thinking he runs the restaurant because he has been flipping burgers there like nobody else can for over 10 years. Keep flipping those burgers, others have a career to build and your job to manage.

The real dummy is the writer

by Oz_Media In reply to Holy Cow Laugh

The writer, apparently the IT guy for his corporation, is completely delusional.

He states he has been given the responsibility, he then leads on with the assumption that these are HIS terminals. Obviously this IT wannabe is 100% delusional. As many have said here before, "it is MY computer, MY server" etc. Give your head a shake, you are being paid to maintain it, it is YOUR responsibility, but not YOUR hardware anymore than it is the users hardware. The USER also has a responsibilty to use that equipment in a responsible manner, just as the IT manager has.

The IT manager does NOT OWN the equipment, as he states incorrectly, it isn't HIS equipment, not "MINE".

It is just another stupid example of IT management thinking they own the IT network, these are the types of people who come here complaining about their bosses wanting to change THEIR hardware etc.

What a knob!

I think maybe it was supposed to be humorous.

Definitely

by Oz_Media In reply to Umm..

But there's no humour intended by the Admin who thinks he owns the systems. I am sure he is quite serious, as we've seen the same comments offered here too many times to count.

The writer thinks he's havign a laugh at the noobs and knobs he has to manage each day, but really the joke is on him for even thinking it's HIS network and HIS equipment. Really, a lot of these guys actually feel that way.

The KISS rule...

by dfirefire In reply to The real dummy is the wri ...

I agree that the humor resides in stating the IT guy is the owner.
Nonetheless there is the KISS rule: Keep It Simple and Stupid (or Simple for Stupido's?) Most people have already enough trouble understanding how to do their job on their computers, they can use a simple, visible "enemy" not to step upon in the form of the IT guy(s). Don't confuse them with debates on who is the real owner of the infra (most of the times it's the bank!), because they could get the idea that no-one is caring about their (computer-)crimes...

Those types of bastages give us a bad name. That is the type of attitude that makes my job harder. Those types of comments is why I get the third degree every time I try to do anything progressive. The twit that wrote that article is the reason why I have to tell my boss when I perform a little preventative maintenance.

I am tired of these power hungry geeks that got beat up in high school so much they now they want to punish the rest of the world. Personally, I think they got beat one too few times. These types of short sight **** ants tick me off. I just have one message for them...

Get over yourself. Your not that important.
