Might be a duplicate, but...

...when all you want to do is send you boss to runlevel 3 so he is neither heard nor seen but still gets his work done..

...when you keep clicking on peoples screenshots and wonder why it wont respond.

--how about when you change someones windows background to a picture of an error alert and you laugh like it is the funniest thing in the world when they try and close it.
-- when you use the DOS "net send" to someone on your work's network that there was an "illegal operation" and that they can hit "enter" to restart their computer. (did this last week and laughed my butt off as i walked the girl thru saving all of her data and then watching her face after she closed the alert and nothing happened)

- when your SO asks you if you love your computer more than her and you reply:

"I do NOT love THAT computer more than you!" while thinking "please don't ask about the laptop...please oh please"
