Old Harold

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 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?”
Harold 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 Harold.
