Tidying laptop trolley every week after students have made a complete mess of it, untangling 30 power packs does my head in.
I hate going all the way down stairs to fix printers when there out of paper.

software installation in curriculum support - poky, 2 bit joke programs that they bought without consulting us, that don't run well, that they never end up using, that aren't part of our image, that require daemon tools etc to run and make re-imaging an arse.
Projector mounting and unmounting.
The rest I quite like..wifi is fun. Printers are a doddle..we never have print server issues (all Jetdirects)..hardware is fun.
Oh wait...I HATE the audit. Yes, I almost forgot that.
I write guides for all the other bits and hand them out as needs be...buggered if I'm going to press "Source select" for a teacher...they learn or they get ignored. Had enough of that piddling around. Like DVD playback using heavily scratched DVDs and hearing "Oh, well it WAS working.."
We're weaning the overpaid fools off the bum wiping reliance. We won't have time for it soon with setting up the new site and infrastructure.

Walking to the far side of the school because you've been informed that a computer wont boot only to find the F***ing teacher has her USB pen in and the PC is trying it's best to boot from that.

We get that the odd time. Another pain is changing keyboards on a room of computers!

Projectors and cabling
You can't do either without getting filthy and it always seems to be on a hot day or in hot room when there's no prospect of a shower for several hours!

Any sentence that starts with the words "I'm in Excel/Word/Powerpoint/Oultook, how do I" and includes the phrase "I thought it would be quicker to get you to do it than look in the Help and Google" really get on my nerves.

Does that mean you shouldn't do that?

Meetings or more precisely getting ready for meetings and trying to explain technical stuff to none technical people. I was never was verygood at that.
My real pet hate are people who donít try. I donít care how bad someone is at computer use as long as they try. But it really bugs me when someone is able to do something but doesnít bother to try and just shouts for help.

Anything that involves finding out that the thing just needed:-
a) switching on
b) paper in it
c) checking the cable is in correctly
d) a bit of common sense!!
