It was the middle of the day when we got called in for an emergency meeting. Boss was already there when we got in, and he was eager to start.
“Right, I need to check that everyone is up to speed on the recent developments in Sector 5. Raise your hand if you’re not sure what I’m talking about… None? Alright moving on. We need to act fast. Think of all the reasons LEAST likely to have caused the incident…”
We were nodding in agreement, already mentally cutting down the list of things to investigate next.
“…and investigate those reasons.”
“Sir? Which reasons”
“The least likely reasons.”
The room fell silent for a few seconds, and then it hit us. We understood, and dispersed to our work stations, adrenaline coursing through our systems.
