I was having trouble with my computer, so I called Harold the computer guy. Harold yawned as he deftly hit a couple of keys and solved the problem. He gave me a hefty bill for a minimum service call. As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was wrong?"

"Not much--just a silly ID ten T error." I thought about nodding like I knew what he just said, but decided not to. "What's that so maybe I can fix it myself and not have to call you?" He asked me if I'd ever heard of an ID ten before, and I said no. He told me to write it down, and I'd get it.

So I wrote down I D 1 0 T.

I hate that _________!
