Some people in this world are technically challenged. Perhaps they can do okay with some electronics, such as a washing machine or television, but when it comes to computers and smartphones, they may fall short of the mark.

I had a problem with my computer yesterday, so I called Eric, the 11 year old next door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control and asked him to come over.

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:


I used to like Eric, the little jerk!
