Sure, the IT guy (or gal) is not always the friendliest of the bunch. But let's not make their job harder than it needs to be. Right? Right...
1.) How do I turn this thing on?
Take a few deep breaths and think this one out a little before making that call to the IT Department. Oh yea, you're pressing the button to turn on the monitor...not the computer.
2.) What's my password?
Unless this is your very first time logging in, they won't know your password. This is probably a good thing by the way. Ask for it to be reset instead...or just look for that sticky note you wrote it on.
3.) Is the internet down?
The problem here lies in the wording. A better way to ask this question would be: Is our internet connection down? It's in the details.
4.) Can I connect my personal laptop to the network?
One of the quickest ways to give your IT guy a heart attack. It's not that he doesn't trust you, but.....nope... he doesn't trust you.
5.) What's a browser?
You use one or more of these every day. We promise.
6.) Can I have my own printer?
You know what they say...Mo' printers, Mo' problems. Fixing printers is definitely the worst.
