Your Favorite Error Message?

My son-in-law Garry Bartle tweeted a link to a fun article today, “A Gallery of Goofy Error Messages.”

This led me to remember the best error message I ever encountered: “This should never happen – Call Tom Sanders.”

Early in my engineering career, I was debugging some computer hardware and software issues late one night, when that error message came up on the screen. As good fortune would have it, I only had to walk down the hall a few steps to where Tom was also working late. We both had a good laugh, and he fixed the bug. Great memories!

That is my favorite error message.  What is yours?
