The Irony of a UNIX System Administrator

A colleague of mine emailed me this funny animated gif about a frustrated user. I thought it was comical from my own user experiences, especially prior to my UNIX system administration days.

I hated going through the troubleshooting part, particularly when the SysAd showed up to resolve my issue after it had “magically” resolved itself. I remember the “all knowing” system administrator explaining away the issue or looking at me as if I had “timing and head space” issues.

Frankly speaking, I find some irony in this rumination… ;)
