Re: CNO launches attack on Sailor busy work
"Rice Bowling" is the habit of hording information about how your job is performed in to inflate either your actual importance or your perceived importance. Basically it's the art of wedging yourself into a job and then keeping all the information about it to yourself so no one can now how your job is actually done so they can't judge you based on how well you're actually doing it. By doing this one can present the impression that a mind numbingly simple job is amazingly difficult.

Never has a more accurate view of the world been advanced in human history then by that person whom decided to name a group of Navy Chiefs a Mess.
