And another (Australian one). Years ago when RZ28s were new disk drives and
StorageWorks was a new concept I was Senior Systems Programmer looking
after a VMS cluster (this story is sufficiently old it might even be on
topic :-). In those days RZ28s in SBB were about AUD$3K and we'd ordered
20. My office overlooked the loading bay and I watched in horror as the
delivery driver DROPPED the disks off the back of the truck onto the ground
(say 4 feet).

He couldn't understand why I wasn't going to sign for the delivery - I told
him to take them back. Digital changed their preferred courier shortly
