SNL: Nick Burns Your Company's Computer Guy!

[Media: Video]

I love these Nick Burns skits from Saturday Night Live. Nick Burns is the computer guy in an office building, and he is arrogant, rude and anti-social. Nick Burns ignores every rule I've learned for how to help people with computers, and represents the way that most people would like to treat non-computer users.

For example, instead of letting the person follow his instructions he'll yell MOVE!!! and do it for them, after which he proceeds to ridicule them for being stupid.

And yes, that's Jackie Chan in the picture.

Oh, by the way..... YOU'RE WELCOME!
