IT Professionals In This Online Group Share What They Have To Deal With Every Day In These 40 Hilarious Memes And Jokes
Even if you love your job, there are always some aspects of it that are irritating, there are some things you would rather do over others, and once in a while you’ll have a bad day. Some professions have more of those bad days or irritating parts than others.
There is a popular subreddit that is dedicated for IT workers to vent. And apparently there are plenty of things that get on their nerves, whether it’s clients or stupid viruses. Professionals of this field come to the r/iiiiiiitttttttttttt subreddit and create funny memes, comics or share screenshots that they relate to, but even non-IT people can have a little laugh as well.
More info: Reddit
The subreddit was created quite a while ago, back in 2012 and now has 192k members. If you are wondering how to spell its name, it has 7 ‘i’s and 12 ‘t’s.
The description when you open the page perfectly sums up what you can expect from it: “Tired of stupid customers? Having to deal with constant computer frustrations at work? Another virus ruining a perfect day? Having to fix incredibly-crafted spaghetti code in Visual Basic? Your database system was destroyed by an idiot coworker turning off the computer? Vent out here at iiiiiiitttttttttttt (i7t12), a subreddit dedicated specifically for Information Technology rage comics! (Limit two le's per customer).”
IT is kind of a broad term now used to refer to an array of technologies and related disciplines. Not all IT professionals do the same thing and as in every other field, like in medicine or music, everyone has their own role and their own expertise.
This is where a lot of confusion and misunderstanding come from for IT professionals that come to share their frustrations with people who will definitely relate. Most often these misunderstandings are between an IT professional and a client that doesn’t understand that a programmer who can fix a bug in a software program doesn’t necessarily know how to fix a keyboard that’s not working.
There are different ways you can separate IT specialists into types, putting them in bigger groups or putting them into very specific groups. The job site Indeed lists 21 job positions for IT specialists. And each and every one of them will have different knowledge. For example, a software engineer improves new software, a support specialist works with clients and helps them solve their problems and a web developer works with creating a website from its appearance to its content using coding.

Though clients are a big source of complaints among IT professionals, not all of them deal with users that have no knowledge about computers, but they still deal with some annoying things that come up. In the subreddit you can find plenty of memes related to unexpected inconsistencies in programs, not very useful updates and how stressful the job can get.
