This just happened 2 hours ago.
I work for an IT company that services many small/medium businesses. I’m in an office with about 8-10 other technicians. We like playing pranks and any time one of our techs leaves their computer unlocked, we change their background to weird stuff.
I had just got out of a meeting and realized the new guy left his PC unlocked. I sneaked around to his cubicle since he was just on the other side talking to another guy. I quickly pulled up IE and googled “sexy pikachu”. Found the one, right clicked, and set as background. Then I went back in to background settings and set it to tile across his screen. Standard stuff.
I quickly sneak back to my computer without being detected and wait for him to sit back down and notice. He notices right away and we have a good laugh about it. Then he says, “Hey, I’m remoted into a client’s computer. You changed their background, not mine.”
I shit you not, at that very moment, another tech walks up with a goofy ass grin and says, “Hey, I have Jane Doe on the phone. She says someone put something inappropriate on one of her computers and she wants to talk to someone about it.” Jane Doe happens to be the main point of contact and decision maker for that particular client. I also believe she’s the owner’s daughter. At first, we think our coworker is fuckin with us, but he’s not. He’s just basking in the moment of instant karma.
我不骗你，就在他说完这句话的同时，另一个同事顶着一张欠揍的笑脸出现了，并说：“嘿，Jane Doe给我打电话了。她说有人把很不健康的东西放到她电脑上了，所以想找负责人谈谈”。Jane Doe可是个大人物——她不仅负责我们和那个客户公司之间的沟通协调，还会替那个公司做重要决策。我还猜测Jane Doe是我们的客户公司的法人的女儿。最初，看那个同事的表情，我以为他只是在逗我们玩。可事与愿违。他那张愚蠢的笑脸只是因果报应的铁证。
I stand there for a good 30 seconds before I say “Ok, send her over to me.” I’m a director and I have a working relationship with Jane Doe, so it’s really best I talk to her.
I answer the phone. I listen to what she has to say. She had a mixture of confusion and anger in her voice. She attempts to describe what she felt like was an inappropriate background on a new PC and she wants to know what’s going on. I tell her that one of our techs tried to prank another tech by changing his background, not realizing they were connected to a client. I apologize for it, I tell her the tech will be reprimanded and that it won’t happen again. Thankfully, that was a sufficient enough response and she let it go.
I hang up the phone and slap my left hand with my right while calling myself a d-bag. I’ve spent the last 2 hours getting my balls busted by my coworkers saying things like “Hey, I’m locking my computer for you” or “Hey, I’m remoted into a client computer, do you want to change the background?”
set it to tiled
That’s the worst part of this
I quickly pulled up IE
THANK YOU! I had to scroll so far to find this. What kinda IT company uses IE
