(joke) ID ten T error
Judy, the editor of a trivia publication, was having trouble with her
computer. So she called Dave, the computer guy, over to her desk. Dave
clicked a couple buttons and solved the problem. As he was walking away,
Judy called after him, “So, what was wrong?”
And he replied, “It was an ID ten T error.”
A puzzled expression ran over Judy’s face. “An ID ten T error? What’s
that..in case I need to fix it again??”
He gave her a grin, “Haven’t you heard of an ID ten T error before.”
“No,” replied Judy.
“Write it down,” he said, “and I think you’ll figure it out.”
