#705: Devotion to Duty

Devotion to Duty

[[A terrorist is holding a gun and talking on a cell phone to the boss.]]

Terrorist: We took the hostages, secured the building, and cut the communication lines like you said.

Boss: Excellent.

Terrorist: But then this guy climbed up the ventilation ducts and walked across broken glass, killing anyone we sent to stop him.

Boss: And he rescued the hostages?

Terrorist: No, he ignored them. He just reconnected the cables we cut, muttering something about “uptime.”

Boss: Shit, we’re dealing with a sysadmin.
