    Warfare officers

    A warfare officer in a hot air balloon realised he was lost. He reduced altitude and spotted a man below. He descended a bit more and shouted, "Excuse me, can you help me? I promised a friend I would meet him an hour ago, but I don't know where I am."

    The man below replied, "You're in a hot air balloon hovering approximately 30 feet above the ground. You're between 50 and 51 degrees north latitude and between 4 and 5 degrees west longitude."

    "You must be an RP," said the warfare officer. "I am," replied the RP, "How did you know?"

    "Well," answered the warfare officer, "everything you told me is technically correct, but I've no idea what to make of your information and the fact is I'm still lost. Frankly, you've not been much help at all. If anything, you've delayed my trip."

    The RP below responded, "You must be an Warfare Officer?

    "I am," replied the warfare officer, "but how did you know?"

    "Well," said the RP, "you don't know where you are or where you're going. You have risen to where you are due to a large quantity of hot air. You made a promise, which you've no idea how to keep, and you expect people beneath you to solve your problems. The fact is you are in exactly the same position you were in before we met, but now, somehow, it's my fault.

  3. So true!

    We had a new warfare orticiffer, he was tops when he got the hang of things. He sat in the ops room one night, we were on the middle and I think he just couldn't sleep.

    He sat next to myself, on the LAC's plot and started tappinghte radar screen, turned to the LOM and said ' i think this is broken', our LOM tried not to laugh but replied ' No sir, it's just not switched on'.
