Random verbage...

No it's not military...but I think it helps hi-light the dif of most situations where you've got your guys that get their hands dirty doing the work and management.

I have a co-worker that has been here almost 30 years... his supervisor has been here maybe 5, and was promoted to that position less than a year ago (after working at in the same posistion as him at a primary site).
He (my co-worker) was pulled from a remote site, to another and used/treated like a delivery boy. He objected and was reprimanded...

In response he has announced his retirement... in an email to all members of the site he has worked at & supported for the last 29 years and the DL for all his fellow support staff. There's been quite a bit of...inhouse discussion in regards to this... some of the local...management I know have been vocal and fervent in their complaint/objection of him emailing the people he did.

I find it amusing that their focus is on what he did wrong in his actions in announcing his retirement, rather than the events and reasons behind his choosing to leave and announcing it in the manner he did.
I'll admit it wasn't the most 'appropiate' action...or 'politicaly correct'...there is a part of me that understands why he went out in the manner he did.
