The Colonel Collins saga

"Word has gone round that the [American] major was heard to say: 'You do your job and I will do mine.'

"Majors do not speak to colonels like that. The colonel apparently blew his top and stormed: 'Do you realise who you are talking to? This is Col Tim Collins of the Royal Irish Regiment. Stand to attention when I'm talking to you.'

"The major stood up in a sloppy, disrespectful manner while saying 'Yeah, fine' instead of snapping to attention.

"At that point, Col Collins got angry and ordered a sergeant major to arrest him for insubordination."

LOL. From the Telegraph.
