Subject: Now ‘ear this

A young Navy Officer was in a bad car accident, but due to the  heroics of
the hospital staff the only permanent injury was the loss of one ear.Since
he wasn’t physically impaired he remained in the military and eventually
became an Admiral.
During his career he was always sensitive about  his appearance. One day the
Admiral was interviewing three Master Chiefs for the  Command Master Chief
The first Master Chief was a Surface Navy type and it was a great interview.
At the end of the interview the Admiral asked him, “Do you notice anything
different about me?”
The Master Chief answered, “Why yes. I couldn’t help but notice you are
missing your starboard ear, so I need to know whether this impacts your
hearing on that side.” The Admiral got very angry at this lack of tact and
threw him out of his office.

The next candidate, a Aviation Service Master Chief, when asked this same
question, answered, “Well yes, you seem to be short one ear.” The Admiral
threw him out also.
The third interview was with an Submarine Master Chief. He was articulate,
extremely sharp, and seemed to know more than the other two Master  Chiefs
put together. The Admiral wanted this guy, but went ahead with the  same
question, “Do you notice anything different about me?” To his surprise the
Submarine Master Chief said, “Yes. You wear  contact lenses.”  The Admiral
was impressed and thought to himself, what an incredibly tactful Master
Chief. “And how do you know that?” the Admiral asked.

The Submarine Master Chief replied, “Well it’s pretty hard to wear glasses
with only one f*&%ing ear.”
