10 most dangerous species of help desk analyst (slideshow)

5. Auxilium Benifica: "I feel your pain" help desk analyst

Auxillium Benificia is a revered and kindly person who, by some strange paperwork accident secured a job on the Help Desk.

The callers love him but the managers are close to despair. He is often asked for by name and is considered a legend by those who use his services. Sadly his knowledge of problem solving is somewhat less than rudimentary.
