Time for a Joke

As I work in the IT industry, I am sympathetic with both people in this joke but can't help but find it funny. We all have acronyms for the users, we just normally don't tell them what they are :-)

As we Silver Surfers know, sometimes we have trouble with our computers.
I had a problem yesterday, so I called Eric, the 11 year old next door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control and asked him to come over.

Eric clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.

As he was walking away, I called after him, 'So, what was wrong?

He replied, 'It was an “ID ten T” error.'

I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired,

'An, “ID ten T” error? What's that? In case I need to fix it again.'

Eric grinned.... 'Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?

'No,' I replied.

'Write it down,' he said, 'and I think you'll figure it out.'

So I wrote down:

I used to like Eric,... the little bastard.
