    This is both at the same time somewhat relieving (there are dumb users elsewhere, too) and disturbing (how do these users manage to breath?)
    I do wonder what these people do that means they can do it well enough to keep a job and have zero computer skills.
    In our company: those people sell things aka "earn the money". They're the profit center, whereas the IT is a cost center.

    I'm often enough reminded that "they earn your wage, too!". Which ofc is true. But at the same time they also cost the company a shitload of money by not knowing even the most basic things about their computer. And they get away with it, because "they don't work in IT." See my rant a couple of pages ago for how the same acknowledegment of active ignorance about cars - even for people without a driving license, would rightfully earn them the label "complete moron".

    I love when companies consider IT a cost.. Ok, I'll save you money by turning it all off.

    Whenever managers tell you you're a cost centre, just remind them that they are too.
