I am a System Administrator, don’t mess with me

You hire me because I know the computer, not because I have a big mouth and sweet tongue, I am appreciate because every times there is a clash, you know I will be there, not when are lonely or thirsty or need a cup of coffee on your table, I am a Computer System Administrator.

Nowadays many employments are all so wrong, they look at people’s certificate and hire them for the job, but when it comes to real work, what do they expect from you?

- politic skills
- smooth tongue
- stealth (for backstabbing)
- Oscar award in acting

As a System Administrator, when you resign, I hope you would not resolve to say something like this to your boss:

“In a world of managerial evolution, you are the blue-green algae that everyone else eats and laughs at. Managers like you are a sad proof of the Dilbert principle.”

And this:

“I have all the passwords to every account on the system and I know every password you have used for the last five years. If you decide to get cute, I will publish your "Favorites," which I conveniently saved when you made me "back up" your useless files.”

Who say an IT person doesn’t have a sense of humors?

Also want to dedicate this song to all System Administrator out there. (Link)
