It’s a Monday morning a few years ago when this network admin pilot fish gets a phone call from the manager of one of the company’s Midwestern offices. Not a nice call, mind you; the manager starts right off hollering: “Where’s our network connection so we can get our LAN connected to the corporate backbone?”

Fish doesn’t know the answer to that question, or really even how this could have become an issue.

Could you explain? he asks.

Manager: “All of our office furniture made it to our new office except for the backbone connection!”

Fish: “You mean you moved offices over the weekend?”

Manager: “Yes, we moved offices, and we need that backbone connection!”
