Today, we spent an entire day without being able to do work because our internet connection was down. Turns out, only the router had crashed and nobody bothered to reset it "to avoid doing further damage". FML

Aw. All you had to do was delete System32. Why are people so fearful of IT still?!

At least now you know how to slack off at work. It may come in handy the next time you go to work hung over.

Well if they damaged the router by reseting it there would be a bit of trouble...not that would happen...unless they don't know what they are doing

We can assume OP's co workers didn't know what they were doing since resetting a router fixes internet "problems" 90% of the time.

Well they never did try...unless they believe the other 10% was too big of a risk to take

They didn't know what the hell they were doing is the point.

Ewwwww, Winblows.

Apple's dumb enough to make an aluminum phone and very little is properly supported by Linux. Win8 may deserve hate, but win7 was good. (What rhymes with seven?!)

First world problems

why were you waiting for someone else to fix it? could've been solved a lot sooner.

It's allllllways someone else who'll fix it, amirite?

Op probably wasn't in a high enough position to do anything about it. Sounds like op was told that the internet was down and wasn't even aware that no one had tried resetting the router until later when it had been fixed.

You don't have someone internal or an IT services company that helps support your business? Or maybe everyone just wanted an excuse to not do any work.

Sounds like they should hire someone for IT stuff or at least someone with a good knowledge of computers if no one thought (or knew enough to) reset the router.

Or the zero of the month for making everyone go back to work.

Did you try turning it on and off again? Oh that's right you didn't!

ha ha...that's the first thing I thought of...IT Crowd!!!!

Very nice.
