I too have worked in this role, some of the most frustrating moments of my life!
Two things that bugged me most in that job are as follows:

1. When customer's call in and say things like 'Hello? it's Mr Anon, i'm having the same problem again' , and they say it as if I have their records open and have been expecting their call and know all their history when they just say their name

2. When people think it is my personal fault that their internet is no longer working... Yes that's correct sir, I pressed the big button on my desk and spitefully cut off your and only your internet connection!

So, I used to work in the local Council's IT department, but moved a couple of years ago to the social services department because it paid more.
My manager his THE most IT illiterate person in the world.
She has this laptop that she puts into a docking station on her desk when at work, her desk is a ******* pig's sty.
She calls me in one morning swearing at her laptop like "This ******* laptop wont let me log on. I've been trying to work it out for 45 ******* minutes now. Every time I type my username, more random ******* letters get typed in."
I tell her I'll have a look at it whilst she pisses off to have a cig.
It took me 2 seconds to see what the problem was. Her docking station had a USB laptop plugged into it and she had a mountain of files and paperwork rested on top of it, pressing all the buttons. So every time she typed something on the laptop's inbuilt keyboard, it'd type a whole bunch of other letters through the other keyboard at the same time.

I dread to think what her call to the IT department would have been if I wasn't there. They wouldn't have had the luxury of being able to look at the situation. She'd have been swearing at them and telling them how their machines are **** etc.

I hate it when people blame other people for their own incompetence.

Oh, god this post is giving me flashbacks to my time working Tech Support for Nintendo. The stupidity...was unbearable.

You Wii needs to be plugged into your TV, the picture doesn't magically just get there. Your TV has an input function, many of them in fact. How am I supposed to know which input you plugged your Wii into? I work for Nintendo not Panasonic. Yes the Wii needs to be plugged into the wall, you didn't put batteries in it did you?

The pay was pretty good and the hours were decent, but some of those people made me want to stick forks into my brain.

One time, working in Internet support call center, this guy, a young sounding guy, could not and DID NOT find the start button on his computer. Just... **** , how.
And there was once an old lady that thought her cat was eating her WiFi because, you know, cats can see things humans cant.

I was working as a web dev but our boss had signed some ******** deal for us to also act as maintenance/support for a local email service.

The 4 of us took turns answering the phone, and every time someone picked up (usually to an angry 200 year old inbred farmer) everyone else would try to make the person on the phone laugh.

I was amazed at one of my colleagues absolute immunity, I could tell he had worked here the longest simply because his face did not even flinch at the point when I would be in tears laughing at my desk.

My supervisor could do the most flawless old man voice. They cut me slack for my very first call but on the second, he leaned over toward me and said "Er, excuse me sir, I appear to have defecated on my keyboard" and in a split second I had to say "Please hold a moment", practically punched the mute button and started laughing.

Definitely made the best of a **** situation (we didn't even get paid extra when this service was added). Fortunately it only lasted a month.

I am doing this exact job right now while browsing FJ
it pays well and I rarely have to do anything, but if someone does call me, I mostly have to wonder how they can even start their computer without help

If you've newer worked at a helpdesk or support center.
Please, shut the **** up. One person can just ruin in your week in a second. Blaming you in the most ridiculous way, for the most stupid things. It is not always that easy to understand : there is a problem with my computer, i cant get that to work, why isnt this working...

Well it's kinda your job to listen to those customers that's what you get paid for

I just now realised that people at help-desks have the sh*tties jobs ever. I mean, you sit at a computer for 8 hours, or more, and get calls from stupid people who blame you for everything that they can't figure out how to do since they are retarded and lazy.

Genuinely had someone log a complaint about me today because some bedsheets she wanted to order weren't 100% cotton, she was literally screaming down the phone at me.

I heard a voice message from some tech guy once, this old lady said her cup holder on her computer isn't working. As it turned out her "cup holder" was the cd tray. And it stopped working because a cup of soda exploded in it. :/

Aren't most help lines on someones private computer with a special company software download on it? I thought that's how it worked now.
