    Even if it was local on-premise small testing environment, I wouldn't enjoy being in his place dropping a cluster 😅

    Is he a newbie or is he someone who have worked for a long time? It's kind of weird that your company gave DROP SCHEMA / DROP TABLE privilege to a newbie.

    "but dunno how much data is recoverable." - data that isn't BACKED THE FUCK UP isn't important and doesn't need to be recovered.

    case closed.

    I love a good fire drill in dev. Shows you what a real production emergency will look like, or teaches you how to rebuild shit from the ground up after ten years.

    These are opportunities for team building, especially when the impact to business revenue is negligible.
