This was a few years ago when I worked as a Systems Administrator for a medium sized start-up. The non-IT staff, despite multiple explanations about what it is we did, somehow had the impression that we were little more than faceless flunkies. This is how our daily interactions with the non-IT staff went.

Client 1: (to my boss, the IT director as he was walking by)  Excuse me, my trash can needs to be emptied.

Client 2: Hey, can you get the lights above my cubicle fixed?  One of them is out.

Client 3: (via text message on a weekend): The toilet is clogged. Can I get a fix.

Client 4: (pokes head out of cubicle as I’m walking by with my hands full of equipment) Excuse me, the coffee pot is empty, could you like, take care of that?  Thanks!
