Very good Shaun, very creative... but speaking as a manager, you missed two scenes... This earlier one...Manager
: I'm going to need a copy of your six month objectives, and also a report on how you screwed up with this recent server overhaul.DBA
: Sure... Sure Danny, you can have that... (pause)... But you gotta ask me nicely.Manager
: I'm sorry?DBA
: You can have all the objectives and reports on how I screwed up you want - but you gotta ask me nicely!Manager
: General DBA, sir... Might I have a copy of your six month objectives, and the report on how you almost put us out of business recently?DBA
: Why sure Danny, my underling will run you by my cubicle this morning and see you get all the paper work you need....and of course this portion of the scene Shaun didnt include....Manager
: Did you order the T-SQL code font red?DBA
: You're goddamn right I did!
(long pause, manager looks at VP...)Manager
(VP Jack, sad, but aware DBA has just sunk himself, nods his head in the affirmative...)Manager
: I believe we need to get over to Human Resources and begin a 526 termination process, the DBA has rights.VP Jack
: DBA, its my duty to inform you that you are hereby fired.DBA
: (angry, intense, to manager) Boy, I am going to tear off your head and spit down your neck!!!Manager
: (in DBA's face...) Goddamn DBA's - prima donnas one and all - No DBA, you are going to leave this place and hopefully learn that you are not above anyone in this business - we're a team and we dont work for you, you work WITH us! At least you are supposed to!
( Weeks later after DBA has visited unemployment office )DBA
: Would you like fries and can I super-size that for you sir?McDonald's Customer
: Yeah, sure, that sounds fine.
There's no such thing as dumb questions, only poorly thought-out answers...
