Re: Do As I Say, Not As I Do? Or...?
My first duty station, I was on shore duty at NSB New London. After about a year there, we got a new OIC. Well, we owned the second floor of a three-story building; to which there were four entrances.
One entrance was right by the OIC's office.
We all had to be there at 0700 every workday; both military and civilian. Of course, the OIC always "CLAIMS" to hold himself to the same standard as he holds his people to. Of course, ANY Naval officer who says this is full of shit - and I accepted that officers will always have the "do as I say, not as I do attitude" - I accepted that, and I carried on.
But what I COULD NOT accept was that fact that coming in between 0830 and 0900 wasn't enough for this asshole. If he came into the building through the entrance right by his office, I wouldn't have given a damn. But he couldn't do that. He had to come in through the entrance way on the other end of the building, so he could walk past everyone - make everyone WATCH HIM come in whenever the hell he wanted - and smile at everyone and say "hi."
I get that he's above his own rules, and I accept that. But to rub it in our faces?
I was to the point where I was ready to pay a local to beat his ass. The only thing that stopped me, is that I don't think I could trust anyone not to snitch if they got apprehended.
