PLEASE tell me this was a ficticious story....please.
Sometimes they can be taught before it's too late, and you get to see the actually light of the epiphany shine upon them.
Try to imagine this. You're wandering around the base, seeing what your privates and corporals are up to. You come across a private pressing a piece of plywood against his stomach while working HARD on a hole in the board with a bayonet.
Me: Private, what are you doing? Pvt: Sir, drilling a hole in this board.
(slow day I guess, I can't imagine why he needed a board with a bayonet hole
Me: Why don't you go get a drill and do it? Pvt: This way is more fun and it doesn't have to be a clean hole anyway. Me: Fair enough, one question though.. Where is that bayonet going to go when you get through the board?
There was a good 10-15 seconds of awkward silence here. You could almost see the gears turning. There was an almost audible "ding".
Pvt: I think I'll go get a drill, sir.
