The user has made an error again.
There is something wrong in your test data.
I have not touched that module!
You must have the wrong executable.
Oh, it's just a feature.
I'm almost ready.
Of course, I just have to do these small fixes.
It will be done in no time at all.

It's already there, but it has not been tested.
It works, but it's not been tested.
Somebody must have changed my code.
There must be a virus in the application software.
Even though it does not work, how does it feel?
How come you didn't find it during the system testing?
It's a setup problem.

A smart user would never do that!
