Team Building..... fond memories....

We had an exercise involving "disaster recovery".. a surprise exercise by manglement.

The phone rings, and a voice "A plane has crashed into your building. Tell us what you will do to resume operations."

Me: "Where did the plane hit?" "How big a plane?"

Them: "Middle of the building, a 737". (It should be noted that our building was next to the airport.)

Me: "Don't care. I'm dead. <click>".

10 minutes later.. <ring> "You know this is an exercise and the whole team is waiting to help?".

"I'm dead. Send in the morgue team <click>"

This went on for another half an hour before they figured out they'd picked a) the wrong scenario and b)the wrong guy to play games.
