Default A Story by NoeJeko

Let me tell you all a little story:

When I entered the military and arrived at my first base, I knew nothing about anything. I was told to call the base hospital one day and book an appointment for my first physical exam. I didn't know the phone number, so I asked my supervisor for the number.

He gave me a phone number and I called it.

When the line connected, it wasn't the base hospital - it was the base commander. The general was highly pissed that an airman had called his personal line, and I got my ass chewed out for a good 15 minutes.

I never said a word to my supervisor, for I had learned the lesson he intended to teach me with his harsh, but effective method:

"Don't ever waste someone's time by asking them to help you when you have not first attempted to help yourself."

Yes, it's a true story. That's what taught me to always look things up for myself first before asking a question.

It's not me trying to be an ass, but more like, taking the words of an ancient proverb to heart:

"Give a man a fish; you have fed him for today. Teach a man to fish; and you have fed him for a lifetime" - Author Unknown, believed to be a Chinese proverb

When generals or admirals walk into our area, the first marine who sees them is supposed to yell out "ATTENTION ON DECK!".

One day I was busy working near the door and a 3-star walked in. I was so caught off guard and with my mind on my work but with the need to respond that I snapped to attention and yelled out "HOLY SHIT!"

Needless to say the General died laughing and didn't mind at all. His aide (a captain) was much less amused.

Old thread, but I want to post.

It's a good story and lesson.

That was a harsh thing for your supervisor to do though.

Nice proverb too. :x

Thats a very good lesson.

I've learned that too, but in a different more vague way.
