I've heard plenty of Chiefs and LPOs give these kind of talks. I was even accused of it a time or too myself as a Department Head... I always found it amusing the way things were done in the Navy, where we took 10 steps to do one step in PMS, while we tore apart perfectly good working machinery to see why it still worked, often creating problems in the process...

LCDR Rabbah Rona Matlow, I know, right??? I never understood why I had to tag out an operational system, take it apart, clean it, put it back together, and then do that (take apart/put back together) 3 or 4 more times until I got the equipment working again!!!

When I was aboard the USS Blue Ridge (LCC-19) a fellow PO1 had an absolutely
amazing way of cutting short morning quarters topside in the hot sun. He was able
to fart at will and was so accomplished that he could modulate to play musical tunes.
The Division Officer would wind up his briefings in record time never once
suspecting that it was being done deliberately.
