Actual Letter of Resignation
« on: Nov 10, 03, 09:22:11 am CST »

Actual letter of resignation from an employee at Zantex Computers,USA, to his boss. His boss apparently resigned very soon afterwards!

Dear Mr Baker,

As an employee of an institution of higher education, I have a few very basic expectations. Chief among these is that my direct superiors have an intellect that ranges above the common ground squirrel. After your consistent and annoying harassment of my co-workers and myself during the commission of our duties, I can only surmise that you are one of the few true genetic wastes of our time. Asking me, a network administrator, to explain every little nuance of everything I do each time you happen to stroll into my office is not only a waste of time, but also a waste of precious oxygen. I was hired because I know how to network computer systems, and you were apparently hired to provide amusement to myself and other employees, who watch you vainly attempt to understand the concept of "cut and paste" for the hundredth time. You will never understand computers. Something as incredibly simple as binary still gives you too many options. You will also never understand why people hate you, but I am going to try and explain it to you, even though I am sure this will be just as effective as telling you what an IP is. Your shiny new iMac has more personality than you ever will.You walk around the building all day, shiftlessly looking for fault in others. You have a sharp dressed useless look about you that may have worked for your interview, but now that you actually have responsibility, you pawn it off on overworked staff, hoping their talent will cover for your glaring ineptitude. In a world of managerial evolution, you are the blue-green algae that everyone else eats and laughs at. Managers like you are a sad proof of the Dilbert principle.

Seeing as this situation is unlikely to change without you getting a full frontal lobotomy reversal, I am forced to tender my resignation, however I have a few parting thoughts.

1. When someone calls you in reference to employment, it is #@#! to give me a bad recommendation. The most you can say to hurt me is "I prefer not to comment." I will have friends randomly call you over the next couple of years to keep you honest, because I know you would be unable to do it on your own.

2. I have all the passwords to every account on the system, and I know every password you have used for the last five years. If you decide to get cute, I am going to publish your "favourites list", which I conveniently saved when you made me "back up" your useless files. I do believe that terms like "Lolita" are not usually viewed favourably by the administration.

3. When you borrowed the digital camera to "take pictures of your mothers b-day", you neglected to mention that you were going to take pictures of yourself in the mirror nude. Then you forgot to erase them like the techno-moron you really are. Suffice it to say I have never seen such odd acts with a ketchup bottle, but I assure you that those have been copied and kept in safe places pending the authoring of a glowing letter of recommendation. (Try to use a spell check please, I hate having to correct your mistakes.)

Thank you for your time, and I expect the letter of recommendation on my desk by 8:00 am tomorrow. One word of this to anybody, and all of your little twisted repugnant obsessions will be open to the public. Never f*** with your systems administrator. Why? Because they know what you do with all that free time!

Sincerely
Darryl Brewer.

I'm a systems administrator and I agree with what the guys said.  We do know just about every move you make.  We do know who you send emails to and what websites you have been visiting.  Most of us have the ability to remember every single employee's password (I know I do).  
Most of us have hacker friends.   :twisted: Most of us are hackers in one sense of the word or other.  Yeah, prolly not good to F*$& with us.

Actually though to be honest, that form of blackmail is a sure fire way to ensure you will never get another job as a sys admin again if it is told to your prospective employers.

for the thirtieth time today ive heard the term hacker.  And its always used in the wrong context.  Im not trying to jack this thread i just want to clear up a few misonceptions.  The unwashed masses call anyone with abnormal computer inteligence or access to crack bots a "hacker"  A hacker is someone who loves to root around in computer systems with no malicious or illegal intent.  Once it gets into criminal intenet and such they become Crackers.  Personally i would be honored to be called a hacker by some of my collegues who are real and true hackers.  Oh and a hacker isnt just a computer geek.  Electronics geek, Astronomy geek, Phone geek you name it they can be labeled a hacker  

::getting off the soap box::

Sorry to Post Jack
Just something ive always been irritated with.  

And now back to your regularly scheduled post

I actually know the true meaning... I actually rant the true meaning as well... but since most people do not.. I just used the term because of the stereotype I wanted to convey.

That is one funny assed letter of resignation.  Damn.  It's a shame I left the IT wrold for T-Com.  Then again - in the wonderful world of T-com connection provision I can shut off whole companies with a few lines of code.  

Still that letter rocks.  Got any more of those waiting in the wings?
