I say that some lapdogs are everybody’s lapdogs – only one doesn’t know it till one sees it. There are officials who are lapdogs to superiors. What a superior doesn’t always know is that their lapdog is everybody’s lapdog. So one may have the curious situation where an official shows great loyalty towards a superior, yet betrays them just as easily and eagerly, without their knowledge. OBSERVATION: This is not the same as the official who parts with a superior for reasons of conscience.
