What did the Computer Programmer Say?

What did the Computer Programmer Say?

Many businesses are at the mercy of their programmers or technical team to operate each day. Email, blackberries, websites, ERP systems, inventory management and more are tools that our businesses and teams who run our businesses need. We found the following joke amusing and wanted to share with our business readers who have interaction with programmers and technical teams on a daily basis. Those of you who are programmers should also smile. It is a joke! We really could not run a successful business without our programmers and technical team!

Top 20 replies by programmers when their programs don’t work:

# 20. “That’s weird…”
# 19. “It’s never done that before.”
# 18. “It worked yesterday.”
# 17. “How is that possible?”
# 16. “It must be a hardware problem.”
# 15. “What did you type in wrong to get it to crash?”
# 14. “There is something funky in your data.”
# 13. “I haven’t touched that module in weeks!”
# 12. “You must have the wrong version.”
# 11. “It’s just some unlucky coincidence.”
# 10. “I can’t test everything!”
# 9. “THIS can’t be the source of THAT.”

# 7. “Somebody must have changed my code.”
# 6. “Did you check for a virus on your system?”
# 5. “Even though it doesn’t work, how does it feel?
# 4. “You can’t use that version on your system.”
# 3. “Why do you want to do it that way?”
