As a proud BOFH, I see it as my bounden duty to defend our IT departments against those horrible wretched nasty creatures known as “users.”

Except, of course, when we pull stunts like this:

trumwill: Over the weekend the company changed everything on the network. They sent out an email with our new network passwords.

morequen: Wait, they sent out *an* email?

morequen: with everyone’s password?

trumwill: Everyone’s password being the same, yes. They advised us to create a new one.

morequen: wow

trumwill: Which would be possible if we could, you know, log in to see the email. Which of course we couldn’t because our passwords didn’t work.

All this needs is “Yeah, we did just upgrade Lotus Notes. How did you know?”

    horrible wretched nasty creatures known as “users.”

    Why am I hearing the slightly tweaked voice of Andy Serkis when I read that particular phrase?
