You are absolutely correct. It is very hard to find workers with a good work ethic. That is probably the number one problem we face each day and it is kind of sad. And to confirm your story, I have a "go to" person as well. Just one though. The younger generation don't realize the way to more wages is through more work and more work ethics.
I'll tell you alttle Story, Pete. Not long before I retired, they hird a Yong Guy , about 19 or 20, and every time, I turned my back on him, he would take off and I'd have to go hunt him down and bring him back to his job.
So, I gave him enough time to finish his "exploring" and I finally, one day, I just said to him, "Dude, you gonna have to settle down and do your work. The job isn't going to wait until you're ready to do it, you're going to get behind and you'll never catch up and I can't stay here with you to cover for you any longer."
He told me that he was hyper-active and that he has ADHD and that he just couldn't stay in the same place all the time. I said, "did you mention that to the Personnel Director when you were interviewed or hired in"/ He said , "No, I take Medication for it and it keeps it under control". I said ,"then, there's no excuse why you can't settle down and do your job, then, right?" He said, "Right"!
But, he didn't and he was moved to another Dept. in less than another week and he wasn't my problem, anymore.
Bottom line, he was just using that as an excuse, if he told the truth about his medication, to get out of working because he would rather run around than to do his job.
I distinctly got the impression by the way he said it, that he had been given, and expected to be given , special treatment because of his medical problems, probably because he always had been before. This was a job where everybody had to pull their share of the load and work somewhat independently or everything would be lost. I don't think that he understood that concept , at all. But, I'll give him credit for one thing, he did get to work on time, and some of them couldn't even do that. They didn't last long, either.
So believe me, I do know what you are dealing with.

Isn't the Purple Heart Only given to those wounded in COMBAT?
Eligibility criteria for the Purple Heart Medal is as follows:

Eligibility criteria for the Purple Heart Medal is as follows:

a. The Purple Heart is awarded in the name of the President of the United States to any member of an Armed Force or any civilian national of the United States who, while serving under competent authority in any capacity with one of the U.S. Armed Services after 5 April 1917, has been wounded or killed, or who has died or may hereafter die after being wounded

(1) In any action against an enemy of the United States.

(2) In any action with an opposing armed force of a foreign country in which the Armed Forces of the United States are or have been engaged.

(3) While serving with friendly foreign forces engaged in an armed conflict against an opposing armed force in which the United States is not a belligerent party.

(4) As a result of an act of any such enemy of opposing armed forces.

(5) As the result of an act of any hostile foreign force.

(6) After 28 March 1973, as a result of an international terrorist attack against the United States or a foreign nation friendly to the United States, recognized as such an attack by the Secretary of the Army, or jointly by the Secretaries of the separate armed Services concerned if persons from more than one service are wounded in the attack.

(7) After 28 March 1973, as a result of military operations while serving outside the territory of the United States as part of a peacekeeping force.

b. While clearly an individual decoration, the Purple Heart differs from all other decorations in that an individual is not "recommended" for the decoration; rather he or she is entitled to it upon meeting specific criteria.

(1) A Purple Heart is authorized for the first wound suffered under conditions indicated above, but for each subsequent award an Oak Leaf Cluster will be awarded to be worn on the medal or ribbon. Not more than one award will be made for more than one wound or injury received at the same instant or from the same missile, force, explosion, or agent.

(2) A wound is defined as an injury to any part of the body from an outside force or agent sustained under one or more of the conditions listed above. A physical lesion is not required, however, the wound for which the award is made must have required treatment by a medical officer and records of medical treatment for wounds or injuries received in action must have been made a matter of official record.

(3) When contemplating an award of this decoration, the key issue that commanders must take into consideration is the degree to which the enemy caused the injury. The fact that the proposed recipient was participating in direct or indirect combat operations is a necessary prerequisite, but is not sole justification for award.

(4) Examples of enemy-related injuries which clearly justify award of the Purple Heart are as follows:

(a) Injury caused by enemy bullet, shrapnel, or other projectile created by enemy action.

(b) Injury caused by enemy placed mine or trap.

(c) Injury caused by enemy released chemical, biological or nuclear agent.

(d) Injury caused by vehicle or aircraft accident resulting from enemy fire.

(e) Concussion injuries caused as a result of enemy generated explosions.

(5) Examples of injuries or wounds which clearly do not qualify for award of the Purple Heart are as follows:

(a) Frostbite or trench foot injuries.

(b) Heat stroke.

(c) Food poisoning not caused by enemy agents.

(d) Chemical, biological, or nuclear agents not released by the enemy.

(e) Battle fatigue.

(f) Disease not directly caused by enemy agents.

(g) Accidents, to include explosive, aircraft, vehicular, and other accidental wounding not related to or caused by enemy action.

President Obama, is setting a good example as a leader.
This is just one small thing that I look for in a leader. In other words if I follow my leader I expect him/her to take the hits just like his followers do.
Now Sassy don't be surprised when other posters take this post and twist it like a pretzel!
