People keep a lot of their private stuff on their computer.

After all, it’s their private computer! That’s where you put stuff like that, but if you work in IT, odds are, you’ve come across a lot of really weird and really inappropriate stuff when asked to work on another’s computer.

People think that they’re good at hiding it, but you leave traces! So your bizarre and strange folders and data isn’t that well hidden as you think.

#1 Dream Big

I fixed my dad’s computer and found a 1.8gb folder of high heels and other shoes. Mostly just the shoes. Not anyone wearing them. The folder was labeled “dream big”

Maybe he has a secret dream of becoming one of the world’s best shoe designers?

#2 CEO’s fetish.

I work for an MSP and have dozens of clients, and one day the CEO asked me to come over and help him get into his MacBook as he forgot the password for it. Old guy.

I had his password in my system, and once I got logged in a flood of iMessages came through. All the messages were from his friends arranging meet ups with the very, very attractive assistant of his. One guy used the phrase “get a crack at her.” I didn’t open iMessage they came through rapidly across the top right of the screen.

She quit about two weeks ago.

#3 Old man got game.

A crusty old man walked into the shop with a look in his eyes like a child who just stole from the cookie jar. The year is 2017 but he asks me if I can burn a cd for him. I am confused, but I indulge the customer’s request. I ask him what he wants burned to the cd, he simply points to a folder titled “new folder” by instinct I double click, and in that moment what little innocence I had left died.

Inside that indescribable folder, hundreds of pictures of what I’m assuming is wife in what can only be described as explicit positions. I’m sure she is a fine lady, but age has not been kind to her, the lack of hygiene and poor diet didn’t help either.

Frozen in place, I slowly turn my head to the old man’s gaze, only to be met with a simply indescribable grin and a slow nod. Never before in my life has I been that afraid, disgusted, and stunned, but I had a job to do. I grabbed a dusty old 700mb cd and burned those images to its form.

It was done, the transaction was made, but I was robbed, of my innocence, and of my sanity.

#4 A lot of things can be found.

Couple of things :

-I found a dead rat inside a PC one time. Customer couldn’t fathom why it shorted out. Thing was like a mummy too.

-Old 90 year old dude comes in with a computer. Pop it on the tester / hook it up to a monitor and his background is the most hardcore gay porno ever. There are like 10 customers waiting in the shop so I quickly just turned the monitor off, swapped the desktop background out in the back and did the work.

-Was at an old couple’s house backing up all their pictures, and those two old folks had some nasty self filmed amateur porn on there. So many grey pubes…

-Had a customer come in and be like “I don’t know why my computer isn’t working”. Load up the desktop and there’s tons of malware, I ask what kinda sites he goes to so I can coach him on how not to get infected again and like clockwork a bunch of malware popups start flashing and playing the “Ass n’ Titties” song. took everything in me to just hold it together.

All the other things are par for the course. Shittily hidden porno folders labeled innocuously, like I’m not gonna see some random folder labelled “Beach Stuff” that weirdly has like 3Tb in it while I’m backing up your files. Web histories to nazi sites. Married dudes who 90% of their history is craigslist hooker links. I mean, you work in IT for like 10 years nothing surprises you anymore. Had the FBI come in one time and take a computer that we were fixing. One lady just left her kid (2 year old) at the shop after dropping the computer off for like 3 hours til CPS came and there was a giant brawl in the waiting area. Somebody took a dump on the floor in our line one time. All in all, it was a crazy crazy job.

#5 Expertly hidden narcissism.

The last company I worked for, I got a laptop back from one of the sales guys who was complaining that his computer was slow and kept crashing. He was the sort of guy who, rather than raise a ticket, sends an email with the entire exec team copied in about how he couldn’t do his job because IT were incompetent, etc.

Well, I got his laptop from him and noticed the hard drive was completely full. Most of the sales stuff is web based, so there was no reason for the local drive to have anything on it.

So, I had a look. ‘Expertly’ hidden on his hard drive in a folder called ‘work stuff’ was over 300gb of naked pictures and videos of himself. Literally thousands of pictures of him naked. Videos of him dancing naked.

One extremely awkward meeting with the guy’s manager later, he was quietly let go.

#6 Sister’s prostitution.

I don’t fix computers, but my parents gave me a task of fixing the family computer. Few clicks here and there and I ended up on my sisters “other” Facebook account.

She was selling herself over on FB. She posted her prices and schedule. She also had 100+ messages from guys asking to meet up. I felt so sick. I told my dad, expecting him to talk to her about it. He ended up kicking her out that night.

Our family hasn’t been the same since then.

This was about 4 or 5 years ago (?) not sure. It still shocks me that my family is till torned about this because my parents don’t tend to hold a grudge for that long. Then again, this has never happened in our family before.

I still love my sister. She’s my little sister, one of my bests friends (because we have practically the same sense of humor) and I’ll always look out for her. My mistake was telling my dad expecting he would talk to her about it (he always did that. Whenever we were in trouble he would sit us down and have a conversation starting off with “okay, what’s going on?”). This was the only time he didn’t have a conversation with her. He just accused her of being a prostitute, showed her the FB and just kicked her out.

I regret what I did because I wasn’t expecting him to lash out that way. But she and I talk daily, and she’s about to get marry to a nice guy so I’m glad it’s working out for her.

#7 Father in law.

Father in law got a new computer and wanted stuff transferred over. His old computer had viruses and ran like shit. Due to this I tried to figure out what actually needed transferring rather than just transferring everything after cleaning it up.

Stumbled upon pictures of him in drag and him getting a dildo shoved up his ass. Why do people insist on large thumbnails. WHY.

#8 Dirty pics.

Was doing IT at a law firm. Saw a folder called literally c:dirtyPics

Immediately opened folder (I mean, come on), saw pics of almost every secretary in the firm naked.

#9 Father

A 20 year old friend’s mother was going through her husband’s laptop to fix some virus issues and found videos of their daughter (my friend) getting changed, taking showers, etc… on the laptop. Apparently the husband/dad had hidden cameras in their daughter’s room taking innapropriate videos of her for years. He’s in jail now, but I can’t imagine how that felt finding out that her own father that she loved and trusted was betraying her in the sickest way for most of her life.

I looked up the news article about it and I was mistaken when I said he was in jail. He had a nine-month conditional sentence plus two years of supervised probation and had to participate in programs for sex offenders

#10 Native Americans.

I used to work for a Native American tribe and the tribes lawyer was an ass who demanded to be waited on hand and foot. One day I was surfing through the program we use to remote into other computers and it will take a screen shot of the last thing the computer was doing.

There it was he was looking at “chicks with dicks”

I notified my supervisor which he notified his supervisor I was told to look the other way… I gave up, you want me to enforce policy on other users but not him? So I found a new job and quit.

#11 Lisa’s ass.

Guy wouldn’t give his password for a security conversion. Eventually he coughs it up. It is “lisasass15.” Naturally me and the other guys start joking around about who is Lisa? Some of us bet his wife, but others think his admin assistant, because he was so shy about it. We got a pool going about it…someone had money on mistress, I went with admin assistant myself.

So we go to the company page for his advisor office, which has a little blurb about the staff. No Lisa. My co-worker goes, “Must be the wife then!” and goes to the biography page, which usually has the advisor’s family on it.

I yell over my shoulder, “What’s the verdict, man?!” The guys are all just groaning at whatever it said, so I get up and go over and look. There is a family photo with a caption:

“[Guy], pictured with wife Stephanie, 38, and Daughter, Lisa, 15.” We reported it to compliance.

#12 Sad dog.

Not me, but one of my brothers in IT.

He worked at a 3rd party Apple dealership, and was doing a data transfer for a customer from their old machine to their new machine. They would set people up with their photos in iPhoto as part of these data transfers. When they were importing the photos, iPhoto shows each photo for a second as it imports. Most of the time, people will just minimize the window to respect the privacy of the customer.

Well, that didn’t happen and there were gigs and gigs of the customer (middle aged mom) engaging in sexual acts with a dog. The worst part was, he had to help bring their new iMac out to their car when they came in to pick it up, and in the car was the dog in the pictures, looking like a very sad doggo. He was really upset by the experience and needed to take a few days to reset.

#13 The most unsettling thing ever.

Dried semen all over the keyboard and mouse. Common, but this stuck up about 1/8 of an inch. Yes, I touched it because I didn’t realize it was a safety hazard. Mouse was so bad he awkwardly asked me to show some new mouses since it wouldnt click down anymore. Belonged to an old man who looked high off oxycontin, told me I had silky soft hair, and afterwards told the cashier I had fair skin (I’m a guy). He stuck around for two hours trying to touch me (I lie, he did touch me a lot, especially at my waist). I didn’t think much of it because I was so confused at what he was doing.

A small chubby 10 year old boy came up to him all excited calling him a teacher or something. That man looked at the boy in his eyes and grabbed both of the boy’s cheeks with his palms and whispered to him. Mom was like “uhhh…hows your wife?” That old man’s last Google search before he bought it in for viruses was “Asian sex slave torture island” (I’m Asian)

Fun fact: every single vietnam veteran watches a lot of porn. Each and every last one of them, with (normally) their whole family or children as their desktop background

#14 Horse dick.

Nothing I’ve found looking through people’s files, because I don’t do that. But, for a while, I was the one who’d remote into people in the agency’s computers to fix up stuff, fix the occasional connection problem, update software, blah blah blah.

Remoted into an executive’s computer onsite, just to recover some stuff and update a few apps.

Boom.

Horsecock.

Just like… the dick. Not even like “woman_sucks_off_horse_Bluray.rar.mkv.mp4.exe”, not “paging Bad Dragon, rush order XL Classic Chance the Stallion”, just, onscreen, picture, actual, certainly, real, living, at-one-point-throbbing, horsecock. I just, y’know, didn’t really know what to do about it? Went about my business, did the backups and updates, kept the image open, set the machine to sleep, sent a message to my super with the subject line “Explicit Material” that basically just said “uh, $CEO had like, a massive equestrian equine penis onscreen, and I assume it was a joke or something, but like, remind people to not leave “sensitive material” open or unlocked on machines overnight? Just like, another legal warning or something”, as opposed to “KYLE, $CEO HAS AN OPEN STASH OF PONY PORN”.

I live by the notion that that was my “arrange by penis” moment, but I’ve come across plenty of other explicit, stupid, or bad stuff on computers at work. That’s just the one that’s stuck with me the most.

#15 Dad’s history.

Wellp, stumbled on my dad’s porn history.

Bad news is it was a lot of incest porn.

Good news is that it was specifically and only mom-son porn? He had a terrible upbringing and relationship with his mom so idk maybe Freud would have something to say about that. I was just glad it wasn’t the daddy-daughter categories cause I would have been thoroughly creeped out.
