Heard this recently. It's come via a professional (NHS) midwife.
When a baby is born every aspect of his or her physical condition is assessed, including their eyes. Their eyes are examined and their pupils' response to bright light is recorded.
A mother whose newborn baby had passed all the tests asked a nurse to help her clean Baby's sticky eyes. When the nurse began gently wiping the baby's eyelids with cotton wool or whatever, she felt nothing underneath.
The baby had been born without eyes. Someone had checked the baby over as usual and recorded that his or her eyes were functioning perfectly when they weren't even there. Someone's getting the sack!
As a Royal Engineer my brother was involved with some sort of training for the Gurkhas. Like, it seems, just about everyone else who has served alongside them, he loved them. But, he says, their organisational skills are (or were - it's a few years ago now) apparently infamously uneven, and there are occasional problems with discilpine.
While he was at whichever barracks it was there was a bit of a riot over some issue or other - probably to do with food, alcohol or pay - and probably related to those organisational skills. While the chaos ensued he asked a commanding officer what he was going to do.
What am I going to do? Are you insane? What I am going to 'do' is drink some tea until it's calmed down a bit. A little while after that they'll come back and apologise, profusely. Other courses of action are not recommended.
