Things You Don't Want Your Sysadmin To Say

1. Uh-oh...

2. Oh S***!

3. What the heck?!?

4. Go get your backup tape. (You DO have a backup tape?)

5. That's SOOOOO bizarre.

6. Wow!! Look at this...

7. Hey!! The Suns don't do this.

8. Terminated?!?

9. What software license?!?

10. Well, it's doing SOMETHING...

11. Wow...that seemed fast...

12. I got a better job at Lockheed...

13. Management says...

14. Sorry, the new equipment didn't get budgeted.

15. What do you mean that wasn't a copy?

16. It didn't do that a minute ago...

17. Where's the GUI on this thing?

18. Damn, and I just bought that Coke...

19. Where's the DIR command?

20. The drive ate the tape but that's OK, I brought my screwdriver.

21. I cleaned up the root partition and now there's LOTS of free space.

22. What's this "any" key I'm supposed to press?

23. Do you smell something?

24. What's that grinding sound?

25. I have never seen it do THAT before...

27. I remember the last time I saw it do that...

28. You might as well all go home early today...

29. My leave starts tomorrow.

30. Oops! (said in a quiet, almost surprised voice)

31. Hmm, maybe if I do this...

32. Why is my "rm -R *" taking so long?"

33. Hmmm, curious...

34. Well, MY files were backed up.

35. What do you mean you needed that directory?

36. What do you mean /home was on that disk? I umounted it!

37. Do you really need your home directory to do any work?

38. I didn't think anybody would be doing any work at 2am, so I killed your job.

39. Yes, I chowned all the files to belong to pvcs. Is that a problem to you?

40. We're standardizing on AIX.

41. Wonder what THIS command does?

42. What did you say your (1)user name was...? ;-)
