How are these sketches considered 'comedy' sketches while they're clearly PSYCHOLOGICAL HORROR?

Can we take the time to appreciate how good the cinematography is?

At one place I worked, I was about 20 feet away from the IT guys. My email stopped working so I walked over to IT, but they had just started a new thing that they'd only support you through email, and they had closed & locked their door.
So I called them.
I try to tell him that my email is down, but he interrupts me to tell me in a rather snotty voice that they will only take support requests via email.
At this point I'm rather ticked, and in a rather loud voice that everyone on the floor could hear, even the IT people behind their locked door, "I can't send you an email about my email being down because my email is down!".
By the next day their new email only support policy was gone, and things were back to normal.
As to my email, it was fixed in 2 minutes. Turns out IT had screwed it up when they messed with the email server earlier that day.

As the IT person turned printer repairman for my company, I love the seemingly insane shit he does to get it to work for him. That feeling of conquering the paper breathing dragon never gets old.

clearly he just needs to print every frame of the video and arrange them in a flipbook.

The crucial mistake was at 0:17, because the only sane answer would have been: "Nope. No original file, no work from me, because I will not waste my time with typewriting. If you are too much in a hurry to do your work properly, then I don't have time to do it for you".

We sometimes have to deal with doctors in our ward who think along similar lines, i.e. "nurses are my personal slaves on which I can dump any task which I deem to be too low for me" (usually ones that fill in for others, doing an internship or the like). The usual cure is to keep such snowflakes completely out of the loop about anything that's going on in our ward and completely bypass them while doing our job, and (very important) "forgetting" to invite them to any relaxing and entertaining after-work activities of our team.
Usually takes about one to two weeks until they get the message and start being more cooperative.

This was too real, and as someone working as tech support for printers, I can totally understand the frustration from the end user! Trust me - I have training and sometimes even I don't know what I'm doing
