IT Support Employee Shares The Funniest Exchange With His Coworker Employee On Sick Leave
Get ready for a tech support tale that's juicier than a mystery novel! We're diving into the enigma of an employee who's a master of vanishing acts—appearing sick one moment and then reappearing like a superhero. Shared by a fellow tech support champ on Reddit, this story takes us on a rollercoaster of laughs as we join the main character on their quest to crack the case of the disappearing coworker.
Picture this: a typical workday for our OP. Suddenly, the phone rings, and guess who? It's the vanishing employee, claiming to be sick again. We're talking Houdini-level timing—disappearing right when things heat up and magically reappearing when the coast is clear. The OP's patience wears thin as they're caught in a whirlwind of excuses and perfectly timed entrances.
Let's get ready to chuckle your way through a world of absurd excuses, perfectly timed comebacks, and eyebrow-raising fibs as we're about to dive right into an adventure that's part sitcom, part detective story, and all-around side-splitting fun. So hold onto your seat (or keyboard) as we dive headfirst into this tech support escapade that's bound to leave you grinning from ear to ear!
Here is OP’s full story:
It starts off with the OP being told that the employee is still sick, but not at the same time.
OP was practically banging the drum, going on and on about the user needing to drop that return-to-work date into the HR system. By now, he was pretty convinced the employee's brain cells were on an extended vacation!
OP started entertaining the idea that a mischievous chat bot was secretly messaging him.
How dumb a human can be? Read down below to know.
OP asked the user to remote into this system and handle the situation from there.
The employee wanted OP to reset the password.
OP told the user to take matters into his own hands and change the password, but then the user pulled a classic "never mind" move and decided against it.
OP told the employee how password changing is for security purposes.
It's like the user and password were playing a game of hide and seek, but the user just couldn't grasp the idea of changing hiding spots!
After all the back-and-forth, it's like the employee's memory was on vacation when he gave the wrong return date, so OP had to hit the rewind button and do it all over again.
No doubt about it, this post went viral faster than a sneeze in a crowded room, and boy, did it catch everyone's attention! Here are some of the best and most hilarious responses it received:
