I kinda want to give xJasminex's comment a positive vote (as opposed to all the negative votes) so everyone who just skims through the comments can see how terrible it is; it's like an English Nazi failing, ha, love it. Unless she be trollin', then job well done I suppose.
Why did you even tell your boss in the first place? Just fix it, if you can. And if you knew what was wrong, why didn't you just tell the IT people when you called them. "Hey this is what's wrong with my computer. Come fix it, because Boss told me not to."
If your boss walks in to see you messing about with your computer rather than working you will get fired - it sounds like a lame excuse if you say you are trying to fix it. You have to tell the boss that it's broken or call IT. If you know how to fix it then the sensible course is to tell your boss and then fix it. If you do call IT then they nearly always think that they know more about IT than you and will very rarely listen if you say that you know what's wrong. You nearly always have to wait for them to make things worse for a while before you will be allowed to give your non-IT-professional opinion. I get this type of shit a lot.
I find this incredibly hard to believe. If what you say is true then I have to say your life sucks. However, I highly suspect there is something major left out of this story that would show us something completely different then the scenario you have presented.
How does this work? You noticed your computer wasn't working. Instead of fixing it, which you apparently knew how to do, you went to your boss to complain about it? Why would you even do that in the first place? You didn't deserved to get fired for it, but it wasn't your smartest move ever.
OMG! kvk thanks!!! u seem to be the only one who's able to read haha I'm not even anglophone and I manage to understand everything perfectly. i mean.. come on... I guess people like to complain and put down others a little too much ! anyway tks ur comment gives me some hope :) lol
It sounds like you just went up to your boss and said "Hey, I have a problem with my computer, but I can fix it." Why didn't you just fix it? You don't need to tell people that you have a certain problem before you fix it. It sounds stupid.
