??? Have you ever seen a Hufflepuff in the middle of a logistical crisis? 
Believe me, they can come across as almost Ravenclaw. But they do insist 
that the paperwork be in order and established procedures followed as much 
as possible. And if they ever get a boss who does things the right way, they 
will gladly follow.

Example from TV: Margaret Houlihan in MASH. Radar O'Reilly, same show. 
What's-her-name from Sex in the City. Worf on ST:NG
