Friday Joke: The Accident ReBoot

There was an engineer, manager and programmer driving down a steep mountain road. The brakes failed and the car careened down the road out of control. Half way down the driver managed to stop the car by running it against the embankment narrowing avoiding going over a cliff. They all got out, shaken by their narrow escape from death, but otherwise unharmed.

The manager said, “To fix this problem we need to organize a committee, have meetings, and develop a solution.”

The engineer said, “No, that would take too long, and besides that method never worked before. We need to start by drawing a Spring SnapCharT® to understand what actually happened, then use a tool in the Equifactor® software to select possible causes.”

The programmer said, “I think you’re both wrong! I think we should all push the car back up the hill and see if it happens again!”
