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.

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).”

Ah, this was once a bigger issue than it is now. Back in the 90s I had a Lexmark printer that had a single cartridge containing all the colors, only it didn't also contain black. It made black by combining yellow, cyan and magenta. If you wanted gray, you in fact did need yellow ink.

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.

Except where the readme is by engineers for engineers...they assume Phd level computer skills when a simple example of common usage would be far more helpful. I have been IT support for over 25 years, and I still see "man pages" where the author should not be allowed near a keyboard.

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.

I had a doctor go "your problem sounds familiar but I am going to make sure because I don't want to make a mistake" and he looked up the issue in this huge database. Sometimes you do get a doctor who understands looking the problem up, which is refreshing.

A customer did this recently. He came with a really short deadline (less than 3 weeks). I delivered on tuesday (did the job in 1 week) saying that he has to tell us when they plan to test it, to be sure we will be available to deliver on the next test environment. Tests are really quick to do. 5 days later I don't have any news. 9 days until it has to be in production. Maybe we will have some fix to do, no idea. Pretty sure he will come back like "deliver the next step now". Can't wait to reply "That's not how it works, honey!" 😂
