    I've actually had this (in red though) posted in my office for a couple months now, except on one of the push pins holding it in I have one of those long candle lighters hanging there as well.

    Our VP of Operations came by and read it once, and kind of made one of those forced chuckles but he didn't mention anything more about it.

    I've had users read it too and pause, good times.

    YouTube - Crotch Stomp

    If that's how the Help Desk puts the fire out, I think that would be a cost effective way to keep support calls down to a bare minimum...

    While yours is more applicable to this thread, this one is way more elaborate and entertaining: YouTube - Blindfolded Man Tricked into Hitting Himself in the Nuts

    I like the lighter; it complements the lolcat very well. Nice touch

    yeah, so I posted it on the backdoor of the NOC. Apparently while I was off, the president of the company noticed it and said 4 Words I Cannot Repeat Here and took it down.

    Executives. No sense of humor!

    I get it's funny, but why would you want to post that at your helpdesk? I would much rather my users come to me with issues than make them feel like their questions are stupid and have them try to fix things on their own. I've never been one to post jokes and images on my walls though.

    I posted the same sign in our section. We have a Service Desk and then our section for IS Maintenance. One of my co-workers said, "of course, the service desk receives the call and we have to set the client on fire!"

    We're not at all concerned about that. Our IT staff gets along great with our users and we all share humor with each other for the most part. It's also incredibly rare that somebody ever comes back to see us, the only time we get visitors is from a handful of corporate staff or perhaps a user from another office that is dropping off a machine to be looked at. If a simple picture like that really made my user's think that our IT department thought they were stupid then that would mean we were doing something terribly wrong (and not just the picture).

    Fair enough, our IT department and users are similar in that we get along and can joke with one another, but there are always those few that take things too personally.

    Most of our customers don't know how to fix their own stuff, which is why they talk to us in the first place.

    I work in a NOC though, not on a helpdesk, though the humor translates. We *rarely* have customers in the NOC, tours can see us through the window.

    The bottom line is that every support job has it's fair share of people that are simply being stupid, and you need to blow off some steam. I think it's far better to do it through humor than through snapping and going off on a customer directly.

    I want to be clear that my comment wasn't aimed at anybody or meant to be disparaging, simply a general observation.
