back to article BOFH: Lock shock

“No, I’m pretty sure you don’t work for the company,” the PFY says, tapping away furiously on his keyboard. “What’s up?” I ask, as the PFY mutes the phone while the bloke on the other end has some form of protracted verbal seizure. “That idiot from accounts who wanted us to pick up the bill for his home broadband has got a …

Revenge - best served Chilled..

Hmm got to love it, PFY and BOFH in full flow, the erm sorry who did they say they were again the boss, can't be, I'd see it come up on the system. I guess not.. Security we have people in the building claiming to be the Boss and various IT people, they aren't in the HR database or in the system anywhere could you kindly deal with them.. You are authorised to use any means required..

Delicious...

...that is all.

The sobering thing is that in many large organisations you probably could do something like this relatively easily.

“So you told him to get stuffed, right?”

“Sure did. So then he got his boss on the phone...”

“And you told him to get stuffed too, right?”

“Yep, and then he got his boss on the phone...”

“And you told him to get stuffed as well, right?”

“You bet. And then he got our boss on the phone...”

“And you definitely told him to get stuffed, right?”

And hot on the heels of the previous one too.

No withdrawal symptoms at all.

Well, that was quick

Even for these two megalomaniacs, that was escalation on a grand scale. At this rate, how long would the company survive?

Of course I check every Friday specifically to see if there is a new BOFH. And what to my wondering eyes should appear? But a shiny new BOFH! And an excellent one at that!

Thanks for getting my Friday off to a great start!!!

So true on the pay day

Many places won't be able to pay you if you don't have all the details couple of days before pay day, let alone none existing staff. The HR process would take at least a week or two.

But lusers never learn. It is not good idea to wage war with BOFH.

The company would do better without few of those clueless managers for sure.

Excellent, gave me the warm fuzzies for the old days when the BOFH was tormenting students and faculty staff.

"Huh?... I'd used 4 Meg already, How could I have 4 Meg Available?"

I say nothing. It'll come to him.

Enquiring minds need to know though, do the BOFH and PFY contract? I know a company that could use their talents

The robots?

They'll be escorting the intruders out of the building, of course. Although it might be useful to re-equip one to clear up the resulting mess of blood and gore...
