Speaking of memos, that reminds me of the lengthy memo we got when I was in the US Air Force.
The gist of the memo was that ALL CORRESPONDENCCE was to be typed on BOTH sides of the paper, as that would save paper.
Yes, you guessed it.
The memo was typed on only one side of the paper, and as it was two pages long, it took TWO sheets of paper.
Or the time we got written up for having too many paper clips on our correspondence.
Or the other time when we got zapped for not having a penciled in "T" on the upper right hand corner of our letters to indicate that the correspondence was "temporary." Of course, if it was temporary, we shouldn't need anything in the right hand corner, we should have just tossed it.
Or the time I wrote the base commander about the cockroaches in the dining room (I was a young lieutenant squadron commander). That made a REAL hit!
Or the time I had to appear in front of the general to explain why one of my "troops" had an accident with a government vehicle. Actually he wasn't one of MY troops, but no one seemed to much care!
That was before the Vietnam war. Perhaps things are better now.
