OLQ – Officer Like Qualities


OLQ Officer Like Qualities

(A Naval Yarn)


This happened sometime in the late 1970s

My boss (a Commander) complained about me to the Captain: “Conceited bugger, he behaves as if he is an Admiral although he is only a piddly Lieutenant.”

The Captain looked at me, and then he looked at my boss, the Commander, and said: “I’d rather have a Lieutenant who behaves as if he were an Admiral than have a Commander who behaves worse than a bloody Petty Officer.”
