Tech Support People Are Sharing The Worst Cases They've Seen While On The Job

There's a subreddit called r/techsupportgore, and its name perfectly describes its content: people who fix computers upload photos of the nightmarish scenarios they find themselves in. From melted extension cords to server rooms that look like a jungle, some of these hardware disasters are so bad, you can't help but feel for the folks who have to fix them. So continue scrolling, check out the pics, and don't be surprised if you cringe to the brink of passing out after only a few of them.

The subreddit was created on the 29th of February, 2012, and since then it has grown into a 427K member-big community. They aren't interested in trivial things like cracked screens or anything -- just the filthiest, nastiest, gore there is. And it doesn't seem that it's drying out, too. Just think of all the people who acquire a new gadget or an appliance, and are so eager to use it, they skip the operation manual (myself included).

If you are, however, afraid that you're gonna end up on this subreddit, there are things you can do to prevent it. There's plenty of information on the internet that you can utilize to become more tech savvy. There are forums, websites, and YouTube channels dedicated to specific fields where you can find comprehensive information on how to reset your iPhone and how to fix a malfunctioning laptop. Heck, if you're feeling really adventurous, you can even learn how to code.

When it comes to technology, the information is out there and it's available. You don't have to study computer science to know this stuff. Like a blacksmith who has an exact feel for how he needs to beat a piece of metal in order to mold it, knowledge and regular use of it will make you better at technology.
