Heard a new one today, figured I’d share. Abuse of the end user is always satisfying.


PEBCAK has always been one of my favourite phrases but it never really rolled off the tongue (the word itself).


  • PEBCAK = Problem Exists Between Chair And Keyboard


Learned a new one today (not sure why this one has passed me by for so long). This one can be used in every day phrases without the user catching on. 🙂


  • PICNIC = Problem In Chair, Not In Computer


Though my favourite is to tell the unsuspecting user that they must be experiencing an ID-Ten-T error.


  • ID-TEN-T = ID10T (that’s a 1 and a 0)
