Smart kid or wise guy

Happy computerI was having trouble with my computer, so I called Richard, the 11-year-old next door whose bedroom looks like Mission Control.

He came over, clicked a couple of times and fixed it. 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… ID10T.  And to think I used to like that little jerk!
