Actual letter of resignation from an employee at Zantex Computers, USA, to
her boss, who apparently resigned very soon afterwards!

Dear Mr. Baker,
As a graduate of an institution of higher education, I have a few very basic
expectations. Chief among these is that my direct superiors have an
intellect that ranges above the common ground squirrel. After your
consistent and annoying harassment of my coworkers and me during the
commission of our duties, I can only surmise that you are one of the few
genetic wastes of our time. Asking me, a network administrator, to explain
every little nuance of everything I do each time you happen to stroll into
my office is not only a waste of time, but also a waste of precious oxygen.
I was hired because I know how to network computer systems, and you were
apparently hired to provide amusement to myself and other employees, who
watch you vainly attempt to understand the concept of “cut and paste” for
the hundredth time. You will never understand computers. Something as
incredibly simple as binary still gives you too many options. You will also
never understand why people hate you, but I am going to try and explain it
to you, even though I am sure this will be just as effective as telling you
what an IP is. Your shiny new iMac has more personality than you ever will.
You walk around the building all day, shiftlessly looking for fault in
others. You have a sharp dressed useless look about you that may have worked
for your interview, but now that you actually have responsibility, you pawn
it off on overworked staff, hoping their talent will cover for your glaring
ineptitude. In a world of managerial evolution, you are the blue-green algae
that everyone else eats and laughs at. Managers like you are a sad proof of
the Dilbert principle. Since this situation is unlikely to change without
you getting a full frontal lobotomy reversal, I am forced to tender my
resignation, however I have a few parting thoughts.
1. When someone calls you in reference to employment, it is illegal for you
to give me a bad recommendation. The most you can say to hurt me is “I
prefer not to comment.” I will have friends randomly call you over the next
couple of years to keep you honest, because I know you would be unable to do
it on your own.
2. I have all the passwords to every account on the system, and I know every
password you have used for the last five years. If you decide to get cute, I
am going to publish your “favorites list”, which I conveniently saved when
you made me “back up” your useless files. I do believe that terms like
“Lolita” are not usually viewed favorably by the administration.
3. When you borrowed the digital camera to “take pictures of your Mother’s
birthday,” you neglected to mention that you were going to take pictures of
yourself in the mirror nude. Then you forgot to erase them like the
techno-moron you really are. Suffice it to say I have never seen such odd
acts with a sauce bottle, but I assure you that those have been copied and
kept in safe places pending the authoring of a glowing letter of
recommendation. (Try to use a spell check please; I hate having to correct
your mistakes.) Thank you for your time, and I expect the letter of
recommendation on my desk by 8:00 am tomorrow. One word of this to anybody
and all of your little twisted repugnant obsessions will be open to the
public. Never f--- with your systems administrator. Why? Because they know
what you do with all that free time! Wishing you a grand and glorious day,
Cecelia

It's amazing how some I.T. Managers and Directors come to be. I think every I.T. professional has been in a similar situation as this letter's author.

I remember once I was an administrator under a guy who started out as the company's Accounting Director. After finding out that he'd been doing some rearranging of numbers his access to nearly all systems was revoked. His buddy (president of the company) "promoted" him to Director of I.T. That's right, an I.T. Director who was only allowed access to the pulic drive and his home drive.

Now I'm currently in the best job I've ever held and just found out this morning that the company has been merged into another. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif

The Systems Administrator is the person who controls who gets to have access to what. They set all of the permissions on a network and/or computer. Which means that they can do and see anything on a system ... unless it's encrypted .... but we'll save that discussion for another class. /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif


Systems Administrator = GOD

A man was suffering from constipation, so his doctor prescribed suppositories.
A week later, the man was back at the doctor's complaining that his constipation had gotten worse, not better.
The doctor asked, "Have you been taking the suppositories?"
"What do you think I've been doing," said the guy, "Shoving them up my ass?"

WONDER IF THIS IS THE SAME GUY????????????
