Computer Error - Story of my LIFE

I was having trouble with my computer so I called the 11 year old next door whose bedroom looks like Mission Control, and asked him to come over.

The kid 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.'

The kid 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 the boy

THAT'S hilarious!! I'm sure my computer geek husband has heard that, but I'm still passing it along!

I'm right there with you!!

(BTW, I was just perusing the Barbour catalog - can't wait for your new stuff that's coming out in the spring!!)

next year is busy, Linda. Four new cowboy romances and an anthology of Heartsong Presents romances. And more on the way after that!

I have a laptop with a maddening
ID10T problem right now. Ach!

Rofl! My son and I just read this together. He's 13, and it caused him to crack up!
