Of all the posts I’ve written I think this one is my favorite, even though it’s not a technical post. So while I’m at Summit (I’m even presenting today!) I thought I would re-post it for your enjoyment.
The new IT manager (Lou) walks into the DBA manager’s office (Bud).
Lou: Hey Bud I’m trying to get a feel for what’s going on in your department.
Bud: Sounds reasonable Lou. But I’ll warn you DBAs are rather strange.
Lou: In what way?
Bud: Well they have rather odd names for one thing.
Lou: Well with a job title of DBA I’m not surprised.
Bud: Ok, so Who’s on call, What’s on instance monitoring and I Don’t Know’s on backups…
