Photos Of The Worst Cases Tech Support Had To Go Through

Working in tech support is not simple. They are required to clean up the messes left behind by those who don't know anything about technology and don't want to try to learn. Additionally, it's not only cooler dust or an audio jack that isn't properly connected. No, we are referring to massive mistakes and hidden fire hazards.
Even if more and more people are becoming tech-savvy and are able to handle basic problems on their own, many people still find the realm of technology to be mysterious. Consider the times your beloved computer produced odd noises, vented various complaints, or, God forbid, displayed the enormous blue error that you most certainly did not want to see. The only option at that point is tech support heroes.
There is a whole subreddit that might disprove your assumption that all IT specialists do is instruct you to press the restart button or assist you with that "serious" problem with the printer that isn't even plugged in yet. On Reddit's TechSupportGore, tech support personnel share their most outrageous repairs.
We know you're going to appreciate our picks of some of their zaniest postings. And start looking after your electronics better. Look at this.
