No Power For That Light-Bulb Moment

, , | Working | June 19, 2015

(I work overseas for the U.S. military. There is a periodic inspection of our living facilities and an inventory of all the items in our places. On the day my inspection is scheduled there is an explosion at the main power plant and half the country is without power for several hours. My inspection is done by candle light and with flashlights.)

Chief Inspector: “Okay. Everything seems to be in order but I want to go over the paperwork with you. Would you please turn on the lights so we can do this?”

Me: “Uhm… no.”

Chief Inspector: “Why not?”

Me: “Really? You just got done doing an inspection by candle light. What makes you think I can magically turn on the lights now that you are done?”
