If you've never hung out with the IT professionals in your office, then this may come as news to you: They're pretty much all reading your shit. You probably even signed away your right to complain about in on your first day in the stack of papers they had you sign as part of the hiring process. I worked at a job where the HR director read every single e-mail sent to or from every single person in the office (and I was asked to resign when an acquaintance asked for my résumé to pass around); I worked at another where they randomly screencapped your screen just to check on you. Do yourself a favor: Always be nice to your tech people. They know where the bodies are buried and if you get them drunk, sometimes they'll tell you. [ABC News]
