Story Time!

I hope you enjoy it...
Hey,

I just want to share this with you, i found it extremely interesting.

There was this massive ship, it was cruising along in the ocean. Assuming that everything was on course, the captain of the ship decided to take a stroll around the decks of the ship to check if everything was alright. As he casually walked around he suddenly heard the sailor on the lookout scream "we're on a collision course!".

The captain was absolutely astonished, he ran straight back into the captains room and signaled the other ship to set course 20 degrees to their left. The reply back was "no, you set course 20 degrees to your left!" The captain at this point was angry, he stated "i am the captain of this ship and i command you to set course 20 degress to your left!" The reply back was "i am a second class seaman and i order you to set course 20 degrees to your left!".

At this point, the captain was furious, he replied back "I am in a battle ship and i command you to set course 20 degrees to your left!" The reply back was "I am in a lighthouse and i command you to set course 20 degrees to your left!"

That made my day, i hope you enjoyed reading it!

They assumed that the object ahead of them was a ship, but it was a lighthouse.

The captain was giving orders to the lighthouse keeper, when in fact it's meant to be the other way around. LOL!

Old mariner's tale. Heard it at my maritime academy many times. Its how you teach the idiot deck department to not be so restricted by procedure that they run into a rock or something (cus we all know deckies cant even walk in a straight line w/o a rope guiding them).


Ajajaja.
