Anyone ever come up with anything creative to pull the wool over innocent user type eyes??

Assume saying "it's too technical, you won't understand", or just jabbering technical bollox is a given...

I bet you come into the office at 8am after 12 hours sleep, smiling and happy "enjoying" the morning as well?

While the rest of us grimace from too much booze and 4 hours sleep

The trick is to overload their minds with techno crap. Often shuts them up.

One of my clients was told by his IT department’s helpdesk that the reason why his stuff that is produced overnight wasn’t available yesterday morning when he got in was because "the high market volatility was slowing down the computers". :bang::suicide:

Truth:
Some twunt with far too much access to the live machine noticed we were running a little over 90% on system storage. Decided to run RCLSTG command which them bought the system to it's knees, with users unable to sign in and the interactive subsystem crapping out on a regular basis.

Lies told to users:
We don't know what's happening, but the machine is running really slow today. We've called IBM and they're looking into it. Try not to log out as you may not get back in again.
