    Glad it made you laugh! I can smile about it now, but back then not so much. :)

    [@Grantwhy] I love the always casual “my computer isn’t working will you fix it” request.

    So you’re saying it’s a PEBKAC or an ID10T error? ;)

    [@Seamus McSeamus] “word box”… LOL almost made me spit out my coffee!

    You’re lucky he remembered it was an error message. Many years ago I had a guy always complaining about the “word box” that would appear on his screen.

    being the closest thing to an alpha geek at work (and the geek is NOT strong with this one :-p) from personal experience:

    3.a Call someone over and tell them “My computer had an error message”. When they ask “What did is say?” look blankly at them and tell them “My computer had an error message”.


    It’s been over five years of that (once every month or two) and he is *almost* starting to remember what the error message might have been.
