A young second lieutenant doesn’t realize that the average Joe might not respond with the speed of a cadet terrified of earning demerits and expulsion.
And, along the way, the Lieutenant makes inevitable mistakes that result in jokes being told about him (or her) over beers at the NCO club later on in what is mostly a friendly, jibbing way.
