G U A R A N T E D T O M A K E Y O U L A F F….

As a department head stationed on a Navy vessel, I was con-
cerned about one of my senior enlisted men. He was a superb
technician, but he had a problem taking orders. One day I
took him aside and suggested he try something that had
worked for me.

“Whenever an officer gives you a directive that you think
is stupid,” I told him, “just say, ‘Yes, sir.’ But in your
mind, think, ‘You’re an idiot!’ Will this work for you?”

He smiled at me and replied, “Yes, sir!”😁😎

 


Monday’s Movie Trivia of the day!‘ What movie is this quote from???  “You’re a wizard, ______.”  “I’m a what?”

ANSWER: Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone (a.k.a. Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone)! After his parents are killed by the evil wizard Voldemort (Richard Bremmer), baby Harry Potter is raised by his Aunt Petunia (Fiona Shaw) and Uncle Vernon (Richard Griffiths), who treat him poorly. When he turns 11 he is invited to attend the Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, with the invitation delivered personally by gentle giant Rubeus Hagrid (Robbie Coltrane). In this scene Hagrid says the first line when the invitation is delivered and a surprised Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) exclaims the second. In the 2002 Academy Awards “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” was nominated in three categories but didn’t win any Oscars. Many of the impressive special effects in this movie were created by George Lucas’ company Industrial Light and Magic. Richard Harris at first turned down the part of Albus Dumbledore, but after his eleven-year-old granddaughter heard her grandfather had turned down the part she threatened never to speak to him again if he didn’t reconsider. He wound up taking it.
