Grad sends warning to manager: Be nice to our kit and it'll be nice to you

Need an IT equivalent of mechanical sympathy....

And its antonym...

In my role as unpaid "tech guy" for family and friends I have frequently had the phone ring ten minutes after fixing something only for the voice on the end to say "it's not working again". So either I exude a technological fixing aura or the poor IT equipment is subject to abuse from the less technically literate and simply gives up.....

Mayhap courses in technological sympathy at school would help alleviate this Industrial 4.0 disease.
