Not just the users are idiots!

Hey, let's give some of our users the Admin password! Seriously this is the greatest idea I've ever heard. My boss is a genius. Now, my job will be so much easier.

(sorry to say, this actually happened)


  1. That's friggin hilarious. I feel for you bro!

  2. I saw a good idea on an Infoworld article: change the Administrator account to IT (or something boring and innocuous like backup drudgery maybe) and then create an account named Adminstrator that doesn't have access to the most extremely important bits. Just let them think they do. Saves effort :)

  3. Yes, but I know my boss, he'd insist on knowing the real admin password and he would eventually give it out to someone he "trusts".
