It was funny because I literally finished a repair for this issue and 30 minutes later this was announced. Then I checked inventory, saw we have 131 applicable systems onsite and cried a little.

You cry for happy GI?  This should be a good thing, the repairs are free of charge plus it'll give you a little busy work to do so you aren't always hanging out in the gedunk or pestering the secretaries.
