The Emergency - Page 11

(forest near work site)

                Worker ChoTen, your global positioning shows that you have remained off-site for the last 5 duodecads.  You have been cited for dereliction of duty, a negative mark on your permanent work record.  Your laxity has not only harmed your own career, it has adversely affected citizens all across this region.  Continued delays will result in further citation and the dispatch of a different maglev worker to handle this repair.  If that is required, you will be terminated from employment with no further discussion.  Is that understood, worker Cho…


                Positioning data shows a single-car train on track Y-64, incoming from GeVinVas.  Fourth switch interdiction has been overridden.  At current velocity, this train will reach third switch in 1 duodecad.  Based on previous analysis, completing repairs in time to prevent derailment at the damaged switch is impossible.  Remain at your present location for safety.  Congratulations, your idleness will result in considerable destruction of property and possibly, loss of life.
