Humor in Uniform : QR for HR – Story of the Unwanted Officer

Humor in Uniform

Qualitative Requirement (QR) for Human Resource (HR)

Story of the Unwanted Officer
A Spoof

A Senior Officer was posted to the Dockyard.

His dreadful reputation preceded him.

He was known to be a terrible bullshitter  and it was rumored that he was a cruel sadist.

It did not help matters when one of his “victims” went around spreading stories of his ruthlessness and sadism  complaining bitterly: “He screwed the hell out of me for one year  he made my life miserable  and then  on top of it  he screwed my ACR – and he made sure I was passed over for promotion.”

When the word spread that the incoming Senior Officer was being posted to the “elite” Production Division  key production managers refused to work under him  and they openly stated that they would put up formal requests for transfer if that Senior Officer was put on top of them.

Even the incoming Senior Officer’s course-mates and peers seemed apprehensive that his arrival would disturb the harmony of the workplace.

They rang up the “powers-that-be” requesting that his transfer be cancelled.

But they were told that since Dockyard was a “criteria appointment” for Technical Officers  and since the officer had never served in Dockyard in his entire career  they had to give him an appointment in Dockyard to make him eligible for his next promotion.

Seeing the increasing discontent spreading in the yard  the General Manager went to the Admiral Superintendent to seek his advice on what to do with this unwanted incoming Senior Officer.

“Send him to HR...” the wise old Admiral advised.

“Send him to HR...? Sir  you want to send him to Human Resource Development...?” a totally surprised GM exclaimed.

“Yes. I heard that he is a pain in the arse. It is best to send him to HR. He will be able to cause the least damage if he is over there,” the wise old Admiral said, matter-of-factly.
