How the Lieutenants won the battle, but the Noncommissioned Officers won the war.
Once upon a time, there lived some NCO’s who had a “Cool Guys” office.
A small group of LT’s felt a need to violate the sanctity of the NCO’s domain by changing the sign to the “Cool Guys” office.
The NCO’s, being “Cool Guys” and all, let this first offense go by without retribution. Unfortunately, the unruly LT’s persisted in their disrespect for the NCO’s office.
In search of a solution to this continuing problem, the NCO’s decided to pay a visit the LT’s to discuss their breach of social etiquette.
When the NCO’s arrived at the LT’s office, they found that no one was home. It didn’t take them long to find the reason for the young LT’s uncivilized behavior.
The LT’s were obviously jealous because their office lacked the flair and style that the NCO’s had given the “Cool Guys” office.
The LT’s office was cold and sterile, without any sense of the personality or warmth.
The NCO’s desperately wanted the LT’s to feel as at home in their office as they would in their own homes.
Working quickly -- while the LT’s were away -- the NCO’s developed a plan to update the office so the junior officers would feel more welcome.
The biggest problem was determining what environment the LT’s would enjoy the most.
After careful consideration -- and a quick consultation with some interior decorators – the NCO’s developed the perfect new office for these hyper-active lieutenants. They had to act quickly to prevent any future hostile activities from occurring, and they where sure the LT’s would be pleased when they returned.
It was proven again that mature experience and creativity will overcome zeal and youthful inexperience every time.
