Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray my pager does not beep
If servers crash before I wake
I pray it will not escalate

@jlcrawf I believe some teams who are on call do still pass around a literal pager to whomever is on call, but that's obviously not the norm now. However it still is relatively common to refer to the device waking you up as your "pager" and being on call as having "pager duty" (where PagerDuty got its name after all).

@kyle we show our age by even knowing what a pager is
