Tech-Support Workers Share Photos Of The Worst And Most Hilarious Things They've Ever Seen On The Job

If you've got parents or grandparents, and you've ever 'fixed their internet' for them (usually by restarting the router, or turning the Apple TV off and back on again) then you'd know what a hero you feel like when you fix things. It's like your Steve Jobs reincarnated.

If you're not familiar with it, it's time to be. It's a sub-reddit called r/techsupportgore (Tech Support Gore) and it's all the horrible, hilarious and crazy things that tech-support workers see every single day.

They take photos and they submit them here so that all their tech-head friends and all their tech-savvy colleagues can laugh at all the crazy stuff people who don't know how to use computers (and phones, and flash drives) do.
