Personal computers are one of the most useful and utilized technologies of our time, but we don’t always treat them with respect.

For example, take mind-doc’s boss. When the redditor tried to use the boss’s mouse while he was on vacation, mind-doc encountered a grimy seal of dirt and skin cells encasing it.

When the photo made the front page of Reddit, commenters were quick to point out that we haven’t seen anything yet. This caked mouse is nothing compared to some of the horror shows you can check out in r/techsupportgore. People must have been curious, because overnight it has jumped to the hottest subreddit of the day, according to Redditlist.

Check out some of the most shocking, cringe-worthy, and simply NSFL computer snafus in our Storify.
