#296 Protocol Clarity

February 18, 2022
Put your faith in the clarity of the protocols!


Oman: “We need to follow the protocols in order.
Smugastut: “Yes, yes, I forgot.”
Oman: “First, you check the situation (protocol #15).”
Smugastut: “Right.”
Oman: “Then we have a meeting (protocol #2461).”
Smugastut: “I see.”
Oman: “You do the wall breach protocol (protocol #9) only after the meeting.”
Smugastut: “Uh-huh.”
Tuple: “Umm... Guys?”
Oman: “Unless the Chairs-Responsible is hungry. Then things get complicated.”
Tuple: “Guys?”
Smugastut: “What?! When was that clause added?”
Oman: “Some weeks ago, I think? There’s a good reason, though...”
Tuple: “GUYS!”
Smugastut: “WHAT NOW, TUPLE?”

Stygian Lord says:

It seems our good friends here are almost starting to get their act together.

Don’t worry. We have a solution for that.

And for anybody who might be interested, yes, the protocols are numbered in the order they were invented. Needless to say that consistent meetings in their current form are a somewhat recent addition.

Chairs-Responsible is the person who is responsible for hauling the chairs from the basement to the meeting, and then back to the basement after the meeting.
