The pompous colonel wanted to impress

Share via

Having just moved into his new office, a pompous new Colonel was sitting at his desk when an airman knocked on the door.

 

Conscious of his new position, the Colonel quickly picked up the phone, told the airman to enter, then said into the phone,

 

“Yes, General, I’ll be seeing him this afternoon and I’ll pass along your message. In the meantime, thank you for your commendation and good wishes, Sir.”

 

Feeling as though he had sufficiently impressed the young enlisted man, he asked, “What do you want ?”

 

“Nothing important, Sir,” the airman replied…

 

“I’m just here to hook-up your telephone.”
