HEY GEEKS: Send In Your IT Horror Stories + Big Giveaway! #getthroughit [Sponsored by Canon]


IT horror stories: we’ve all heard about (or experienced firsthand) helpdesk tickets that provide absolutely no logical explanation to system admins. They provide fodder for stories that get retold again and again and make the whole IT community laugh and learn. They help us become better at what we do by teaching us valuable lessons about what and what NOT to do when it comes to supporting users or working on valuable equipment.

Since everyone love these stories, we’re asking you, dear readers, to send us YOUR favorite original IT horror stories. Naturally, real names (companies or people) should not be disclosed. And thanks to Canon, who is partnering with us for this project, we’ll be giving away one Canon Color ImageCLASS MF820Cdn printer (A value of $1299.00) to a random participant. You’ll also have the opportunity to have your IT horror story featured alongside others on Canon’s website (coming soon!)

All you need to do for a chance to win is send your stories over to our sister site: stories@geeksaresexy.net. You can also share your help desk ticket on social media (tag @geeksaresexy on Twitter or Geeks Are Sexy on Facebook) using the hashtag #getthroughit. Brownie points to those who upload a video of themselves reading their IT help desk ticket! (multiple submissions will not increase your likelihood of winning the giveaway)
Good luck to everyone!
