Funny Help Desk Requests, From Irreverent to Irrelevant

By Robert Half on August 15, 2017 at 3:00pm

Check out these funny (and sometimes crazy!) help desk requests and you'll probably have a whole new appreciation for your technical support team.

In fact, you may admire their amazing social skills and technical knowledge so much that you'll want to nominate them for an HDI award.

Robert Half Technology asked CIOs what was the strangest or most unusual request they or a member of their help desk or technical support team had ever received. There was no shortage of unusual and hilarious requests, from one user asking how to merge Facebook and Google, to another wondering how to install a tracking device on her daughter's computer.

Take a look at the SlideShare below for many other funny help desk requests, and share your funniest stories on the topic with us as well!
