A Powerless Solution

, , , , | Working | October 11, 2018

(It has been a very long day at my IT-based company. An important server went down this morning in a particularly messy way. We’ve been on a conference call with both business and technical people for over four hours at this point, first getting the server restarted, then cleaning up all the messes it made and downstream problems that were indirectly caused by the messes. We’ve finally gotten to the end of it all; we’ve solved the last problem and gotten everything back on track.)

Coworker #1: “Okay, so is that it? Are there any other problems?”

(As soon as the words are out of her mouth, all the lights in the building go out; it’s a power outage.)

Coworker #2: “WELL, THAT MIGHT BE ONE!”
