That is a weird package to break scaling?

You obtain a digital ID simply by visiting the post office with your plastic ID card, then all of the Gov depts can be operated via your digital ID linked to your phone.
Hospitals also have (limited) access to the database, so your health records can be accessed and amended by any hospital which means you don't carry a file of docs anywhere. Visit the doctor, hand over your ID card and they can check older reports instantly.
It is linked to phone contracts, so they know who owns which phone (which makes the police job of hacking and listening to people via their phones).
It is linked to the driving license DB, I have lost my TR licence, all I have to do is book an appointment via the gov police gateway.
And so on.
It is incredibly convenient and at the same time incredibly oppressive since all doors can be shut down in a sec and the police will come and grab you from your mobile tracking data pretty much instantly - whenever they like it.
When I used to WFH a couple of years ago, in the middle of a frustrating bit of work I noticed a beep beep sound. Went around the place, nothing.
Then I realized it was my young neighbours' fire alarm. I duly knocked on their door, had no answer, looked through the letterbox, saw smoke, and then rushed back in to my place to call 999.
Fire brigade arrived incredibly quickly, after I explained the situation, they promptly broke the door into bits, walked in to the kitchen and saw neighbours' dinner burning into a crisp.
As they were explaining the situation, Lad & Ladette drive in, look at the ongoing circus and ask "WTF is going on?" They had popped out for a quick shopping while the food was cooking, returning to their door being a bunch of splinters.
I was very embarrassed but still I think I've done the right thing.
All of that containerization will also take its toll. I can't believe a Docker server will not be harmed more than a pure app. Each kernel network call to jump between docker - rest of the world network barriers will be an additional cost.
14-seater minibuses are ubiquitous elsewhere in the world and work significantly better than large double-buses. More frequent and quicker service (reduced loading/unloading times at the stops).
On the other hand, if you are to transport a very large amount of people to similar destinations, large buses have their point.
"Such assistance may include, but is not limited to, telephone or in-person meetings with SunTrust employees, attorneys and/or accountants, or the provision of truthful testimony by way of deposition, hearing, trial, interview, subpoena response or affidavit. SunTrust will be responsible for any reasonable and necessary expenses incurred by me and approved by SunTrust in connection with such services."
Actual severance clause.
The bastards are actually asking you to come over, sit in front of a computer, fix the problem, for free. They will pay for the expense, but not time.
