      There was no stooping involved.  This was SOP.

      Well, I suppose that's one way of looking at it.  I think if it were me, I'd be more upset that they had to stoop to that level just for optics.

      notoriously sensitive about serving under juniors;
      changing the date of Rosy's promotion avoids this
      problem.
