Of course I kid.
Oh please of course there were manufacturers that had issues from time to time with their products - if you haven't noticed the IT world is a little on the large side in terms products and commerce. I've been in this business for a LOOOONG time and am where I am today because I'm dammn good at it but users are just that - users - and if you pull the stats from any IS&T helpdesk/deskside team you'd find the majority of calls
aren't crashed hard drives or memory parity errors as you alluded. At my office those stats are posted outside the helpdesk area and I walk by them every day. Generally it's the user making a mistake, not understanding something, or causing their own headache, plain and simple.
