I am the IT Guy Babydoll
Until this shirt is no longer needed
We wish for a day in the future when this shirt is no longer relevant. When the phrase "IT Guy" is no longer the default. We're auditioning replacement terms. Maybe "IT Guru?" "IT Ninja?" We'll stick with "IT Monkey" around ThinkGeek World Domination HQ.
Probably every female in IT has experienced this at least once. Here's T-shirt Girl's favorite anecdote from her own collection. Back in her customer service days, she had this lovely exchange with a gentleman who didn't know how to make his modem go:
T-Shirt Girl: Thank you for calling [company name redacted]. My name is [T-Shirt Girl]. How may I help you?
Gentleman Caller: I'm looking for technical support.
T-Shirt Girl: Okay. What seems to be the problem?
Gentleman Caller: No, I need [enunciating] tech-ni-cal sup-port.
T-Shirt Girl: Right. How can I help you?
Gentleman Caller: You're female.
T-Shirt Girl: Umhmm. [at this point the gentleman hung up, presumably running away screaming]
(Would it be wrong to say that I hope he can't read this because he's still sitting there trying to figure out how to get his 9600 baud modem to connect?)
