He was the project tech and was showing them how you could give it coordinates and an image of the objective and off it would go. Multiple options existed for the target – identify, pick up and bring back small packages, or deliver packages to soldiers in the field.
For some reason his boss named the drone REARY.
They gave him multiple tests – North, East, South – and it behaved perfectly each time. Finally someone requested a western target but the drone just sat there. He explained that this was the prototype and one of the subsystems had malfunctioned but it would be repaired the next day.
A General said “You mean to tell me…” and the tech completed his sentence – “Yes, until this is repaired there is no West for the REARY.”
I made this one up so apologies to all of you.
