Got it as a forward . Its funny question so don't think too hard

IQ Question - for all those who think they are clever!!!!

Here is a puzzle for you

Imagine you are in Hwange. You have been tied hanging on a tree with
a rope anchored on the ground, a candle is slowly burning the rope,
and the lion is waiting for you to drop and be his lunch.


Your survival hinges on the rope staying intact, there is no one
around to help you. The only possible way is to somehow convince the
lion to BLOW the candle out. How do you do that?

Whwn I tried this PJ on my collegues in my team a couple of years back, someone who knew the answer declared it ....

There was this guy in the team who messed up a few days back by requesting the oprerator to run a wrong set of jobs ... once he realized his mistake, the jobs were still in queue ready to run .... without losing a moment he called up the operator and requested her to cancel the jobs but was greeted with the response - 'I can do that only once I receive the proper memo which needs to be submitted copying your manager and the manager of production operations'. By the time he was able to do that, the jobs had started running and a few of them even completed messing up quite a few things and resulting in a serious escalation the next day. On hearing this joke, this guy reacted - ' I should have sung Happy Birthday to the Operator that day and she would have cancelled the jobs and saved me the stick !!!'
