Fix it yourself

Good to see that even in today’s awful work climate, there are plenty of office workers who are still firmly devoted to beating the system.  Literally.

According to a new survey, 13% of office workers say that if they really wanted their company to replace their old computer with a new one, they think the quickest way to make it happen would be . . . SMASHING their computer.

7% of people would try buying parts and upgrading their computer themselves.

4% would put in a request saying they needed a computer to be set up for a new co-worker, and hope no one realized it wasn’t true.

And 20% said they’d take their computer to a store and trade it in for a new one . . . THEN tell their boss or the I.T. department about it.

Added up, that means almost HALF of workers think that the best way to get a new computer at work is by taking care of things on their own.

Only 37% of people said they’d go about things by the book . . . filing a request with their manager demonstrating why they need a new machine and how much it would improve their work.

    #1 Rule here – Always befriend the I.T. guys or gals at your company, and trust me, you will almost always get the results you are after!!! (especially in a smaller, privately-owned company – larger companies, befriend the money folks)!!! 🙂
