Another Friday Funny...!

Once again Baby Sis sent me something I thought would bring a smile, so I figured I'd share it with you.

The ever present "reminder" of the value of the youngest among us!

As we SILVER Haired Surfers know, sometimes we have trouble with our computers. Yesterday, I had a problem, so I called Georgie, the 11 year old next door, whose bedroom looks like Mission Control, and asked him to come over. Georgie clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.

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.'

Georgie 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: ID IO T

I used to like Georgie, the little ****head.

A sign of the times, my friends! A sign of the times!

Coffee out on the patio this morning, OK?

Holy cow! Does that ever ring a bell. I have had to ask the younger generation for computer help only to find I had pressed the wrong button or forgot to press the coBaby Sis and Mr Hermit. Have a wonderful weekend. Save my spot on the swing for me.

Yeah - I'm asking 5 year old grandson Henry next time ~ he's not allowed to say ugly things to grown ups!

Big hugs and cooler weather ~

Now that is so funny but he shouldn't tell people that haha I have had to get my grandkids to bail be out too.

I used to work in a call center as a DSL tech, we joked a lot about those ID 10 T errors! But they weren't all done by older folks.

Hey Linda...
Happens to all of us from time to time, I reckon.
Thanks for stopping by today!

Hey Sis...
That lesson should stay with us all, even in our later years!
Thanks for coming by today, Sis!

Hey Jo...
Like I said...happens to us all at some point.
Thanks, sweetie, for dropping by today!

Hey Ladyhawthorne...
Anyone can have one of those moments, I reckon. I know I do!
Thanks for the visit today!
