Book 11: Massively Parallel — Part I: High Olympus Command


Thurl: First, everybody off the ship. The nice robots need to get back to work.
Thurl: Ventura, send me a summary of your work. Elf, walk with me.
Para Ventura: Yessir.
Elf: Thurl, why did she give you a "yessir?" She won't even listen to me but she outranks you!
Thurl: That's the difference between personal authority and position authority.
Elf: I don't get it.
Thurl: I know. That's why you're in charge, buy you're taking orders from me at the moment.
