Motherboard: What you probably just destroyed after I heard the fateful words "No, don't send a tech, I can do this." *Sizzle*

Local Support : Your buddy who swore up and down that installing that new video card was "no big deal" and could do it for you in return for a beer.

Good Customer: Expect you to install pirated software for them because they either

A. "spend X amount with you guys, can't you do me just this one favor?" or
B. are "broke"/cheap

Warranty: That service contract you just voided by spilling a class of beer onto your laptop.

I fired my webmaster: How you just lost your site. Next time, make sure your webmaster doesn't legally own the site before you try to screw him over.

I am a webmaster: You can create a hyperlink in FrontPage, and you think you're hot shiat.
