I was having trouble with my computer.
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 D 1 0 T

I used to like Eric, the little bastard

Have a nice day.
:)

Get him back and beat him viciously with the nearest heavy object.

maybe it was something you did but he could have told you what exactly and then shown you.

I had a smartass colleague at F&P like that. Everyone hated him and did nasty things to him on his last day.

An example, every day one guy would attempt to login to his PC using caps lock, and of course it would reject it 3 times then lock him out. Every other tech would unlock it and log him in.
Until me, I showed him what effect the caps lock key was having and explained thats why it happened every day.
That was the last time he did that.

A bit of customer service goes a long way - people are new to computing, not stupid and smarmy stuckup little shits like your nieighbour don't impress me at all.

Get him back and beat him viciously with the nearest heavy object.Trev's post is just a copy and paste of a "story" that can be found all over the net. Not the first time he has posted stuff without mentioning he is not the author.

Thread moved to Chat forum.

While it may have been an old joke - Seriously - a lot of people cant fix computers when something goes wrong, or even have a clue where to start looking if its different to what they would normally do on a day to day basis.

It amazes me how gullible some people can be.

I've seen the joke before but I thought I'd give you the benfit of the doubt. Cause it isn't funny.
