2.- It works in my machine!

We all have used this one when blamed for some error…

3.- D’oh!

– Hi Homer, have you removed the debug code from production?

4.- It will be ready tomorrow.

The problem with this sentence is that we use it again the next day, and the next day, and the next day…

5.- Have you tried turning it off and on again?

The TV series  “The It Crowd” have helped to make this one even more popular…

6.- Why?

Why do we keep asking why?

7.- Is not a bug, it’s a feature.

– It restarts twice a day?!! Well that makes sure that the temporary files get deleted!

10.- No, I don’t know how to fix the microwave.
