This comes from Brooks Hilliard, an independent management consultant. It has absolutely nothing to do with today’s election, so let me take a moment to remind you to VOTE. (Sloth and apathy, not to mention ignorance and cynicism, may be upon the land — but not upon the readers of this web site, I’m happy to say.)
If you liked the frozen chicken story [Brooks writes], you’ll love this one, reputed to be an actual radio conversation recorded by the Chief of Naval Operations, 10/10/95 (I can’t vouch for the veracity of the claim, however):
#1: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the North to avoid a collision.
#2: Recommend you divert YOUR course 15 degrees to South to avoid a collision.
#1: This is the Captain of a US Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.
#2: No. I say again, you divert YOUR course.
#1: THIS IS THE AIRCRAFT CARRIER ENTERPRISE. WE ARE A LARGE WARSHIP OF THE US NAVY. DIVERT YOUR COURSE NOW!!!
#2: This is a lighthouse. YOUR CALL!!
