IT Department At Any Company, The Comments (You must Login to Comment)

1 I think IT departments would make great Born Again Christians. They seem to know what's best for us better than we do. -- Submitted By: (ParkerTillman) on August 27, 2012, 10:41 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 A name change can make a big difference in how something's perceived; look up the term "unfortunate acronym" sometime. The FBI's Behavioral Analysis Unit was at one time called the Behavioral Sciences Unit. Its name was changed to "Investigative Support Unit," literally in order to take the BS out of profiling. Since profiling in those days was considered by some to be a witch-doctor-style art rather than a serious investigative tool, the name change made a big difference in how it was perceived -- and received, when the agents were called in to assist on a case. Anyway, point being, you can't blame those IT guys for not wanting to be called "EUSC" or "You suck." -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on November 27, 2010, 7:52 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 At my old job the IT guys we had to use were called the End User Support Center, or "EUSC". Everyone at the office used to derisively pronounce "EUSC" as "You Suck". The new employees didn't know it was a joke and started calling them Yousuck to their faces. Then they had a big meeting about being called "that horrible name" and eventually changed it to something else. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on November 25, 2010, 5:40 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 Actually, diezman, the bad English skills aren't a knock against the IT people, but against the management fools that decided to outsource the IT functions to someplace like India ... forcing customers to cope with subpar language skills when they need assistance, and also forcing IT people in the good ol' US of A out of work. I would like to see corporations' tax breaks tied to the percentage of their employees who actually work in the US, but that's another topic and another can of worms. -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on December 24, 2009, 12:41 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote

6 I don't think it's overcompensation. I think it's just them being human. Computers seem to effect people in that way. People that are good with computers sometimes run into the situation where they simply cannot understand how someone might not understand them. They also run into the situation where they feel their way of doing things is the right way and any other way of doing it foolish. Because computers have become so integrated into our society, I think it's not so much having the skills that makes them feel superior as much as their perception of others that lack the skills they have. Once you get down to it, it's really no different from a lot of other skills in our society where people that have them treat people they feel don't like crap. -- Submitted By: (ExplodingConsole) on December 20, 2009, 10:44 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Stephanie, I think some of them are compensating for more than being geeks... -- Submitted By: (MCS) on December 19, 2009, 9:34 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 Don't even get me started! If you ever need help on your company computer, what's with the "I'm in IT so I'm so much smarter than you!" attitude?! I've decided it must be over-compensation for their extreme geekiness. -- Submitted By: (Stephanie) on December 18, 2009, 9:08 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
