It’s nearly Valentine’s Day and love is in the air. The birds are chirping a little more sweetly, flowers are a little more colorful, and stores everywhere are stocked with heart-shaped boxes of chocolates. With this in mind, we at SolarWinds wanted to find out if those of you in the IT trenches are also feeling the love from end users, or if like a Shakespearean tragedy, you’re more like star-crossed lovers.

So, we asked our Thwack community of more than 150,000 IT professionals, “What’s the most impressive thing end users have done for you to express their gratitude for your amazing labors of love?” Here we share a few of their stories through memes that express just how much the old adage “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” holds true for end users and IT pros alike. End users expressed their gratitude to those who solved their IT problems with sweet treats, gift cards, and more.

If you’re an IT pro, hopefully these stories will buoy your spirits and show you that yes indeed, IT pros are loved and appreciated. And if you’re not an IT pro, this is a good reminder of just how valuable your IT department is and that just maybe you should go a little out of your way this Valentine’s Day to show your IT team some appreciation.
