It’s Finally Here; July 27th

You’ve anxiously been waiting all year for July 27th, and it finally arrived; it’s system admin day. Your computer is running, phone is ringing, printer is jam free, and for all of that, you have a system administrator to thank. Bring out the dusty office decorations and drape them from the walls and cubicle corners for today is system admin day!

Happy System Admin Day!

So…what is system administrator day? It’s just the one day a year that we pay special attention to our hard-working IT team members and departments. They’re the firefighters of the office constantly putting out fires. They’re there rain or shine, snow or ice, weekend or nights, to make sure things run smoothly. So, stand up in your cubicle and be the patriot to pioneer an epic slow clap to celebrate your system admin.

Now that we know that today is the day to carry our system admins around on our shoulders, how else can we celebrate their greatness? We made it easy for you by compiling this epic list:

  • Banquet of treats
  • Ice cream castles
  • Doughnut towers
  • Pizza forts
  • Candy statues in their likeness
  • Make them the main character in your next screenplay
  • Post-it note portrait of them slaying a dragon on the conference room wall
  • Hand feeding them grapes
  • Not clicking on any spam emails…

Thank you

Now that the question has been answered “What am I going to do today?”, go and make your system administrator know that they’re appreciated. They work hard so that you can work. No amount of groveling or showering’s of affection is too much.

They’re often forgotten about, hated for our mistakes, and locked away in their caves. Let’s learn their names, bring them into the light, and say thank you. After all, who else would be willing to repeatedly explain to us how to empty our spam folders.
