IT assistance can be a rewarding job if you enjoy working with people and solving problems. It can sometimes be downright frustrating, especially since no client ever calls thrilled. No one wants to spend two minutes, let alone twenty minutes, on the phone telling a tech support representative how great their printer or wire cables are. Picking up calls from enraged clients has a psychological effect that might be overlooked; yet, working with them can be quite taxing.

Being drained isn’t just due to the difficulty of detecting problems; it’s also due to the fact that some people’s attitudes can be too much for mental equilibrium. Thanks to a Reddit forum called Techsupportgore, images of what tech support workers go through on the job are surfacing on the internet. We’ve compiled a list of the most terrifying instances we’ve ever seen, and they’re sure to make you cringe.
