ID ten T

I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Harold,
the computer guy, to come over. Harold clicked a couple of
buttons and solved the problem. He gave me a bill for a
minimum service call.

As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was

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

I didn't want to appear stupid, but I nonetheless inquired,
"An ID ten T" Error? What's that, in case I need to fix it

Harold grinned. "Haven't you ever heard of an "ID ten T" error

"No," I replied.

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

So I wrote it down.

I D 1 0 T

I used to like Harold...but now I'm not so sure!


Which brings me to the co-worker.....trying to Network to her computer today I could not.  Mind you I NEEDED TO DO PAYROLL.

Many times I go to her desk and run my own adware to de-bug.  I don't want any of her virus's.  She is running AVG ooooh la la...I said "get rid of it!!"...........running my own adware I find several issues.  I still don't know why she refuses to use aol's McAffe even.

Then I reboot........and viola!

(She's the electronics wiz.)

Guess she has the "ID ten T" problem too.

Then I'm talking on the phone to a field superintendant with a mound of paper in my hands looking through them.........she takes them away all but one piece.

I cannot continue my conversation........I don't have any information anymore.  She has walked away knowing I was still on the phone.

Again that "ID ten T" syndrome.

Some days it seems to just surround me.

Do I ever relate to this, but I am used to having Dave, my computer tech guy, walk in and solve the problem in a matter of minutes I have been working on for what seemed like hours.  When I first got a computer I would be calling my daughter reporting strange happenings all the time.  My sis in Utah can't find her download photo from e-mail process.  Everyone is advising her.  No go.  She swears her service doesn't have it.  Wanna bet?   Gerry
