I have it.

Our stupid IT group sends about 3-4 e-mails a day telling us nothing. Basically all they do all day is spam us, and when stuff goes wrong there is only really one guy who can do anything about it. They are worthless.

One time the web access went down, was down for about 30 minutes, and then came back up. IT sends an email that says "The internet was down for about 30 minutes. It fixed itself, and now works again." WTF?!

Anyway, they've been sending e-mails asking people to zip docs that are larger than 1mb. Unfortunately not everyone has the same zip program! So far today I have received 3 e-mails from this one IT guy with different directions on how to unzip docs. He's driving me mad. So I come into the office and I see yet another e-mail! I'm all "I'm going to zip all his e-mails and send them to him if he e-mails me any more." I go around the corner to get coffee and he is sitting there trying to fix a computer. He's still there. I don't think he understands english.

You do not in all honesty mean that they are supposed to do anything useful?

How could he tell you at the end of July last week, which was June?

Your sentence structure leaves much to be desired.

See, the emails actually make sense, it's just that Japher can't read or write.

he told us we'd get new computers and that those computers would be given to us at the end of july!

maybe he's not in control of when the computers come in? maybe the deal fell through?

As far as the internet going down, i can relate. it happens over here because the VP has shitty internet service.

Being an IT person myself (and apparently the only one that do half the stuff around here) i can empathize with him.

the only guy that does stuff in IT thinks he's an idiot

So let me get this straight. Japher goes around the corner to the coffee machine, and "the IT guy" is at the coffee machine. "The IT guy" can't speak English, and, given the evidence in this thread, neither can Japher.

I put it to you, good peoples of the Intarweb, that Japher is the IT guy, and by his own admission therefore an idiot. It's all very Superman/Clark Kent-ish.

.zip files are standardized...
