A Captain Saw A Light Dead Ahead On A Collision Course With His Ship. This Followed.

Through the pitch-black night, the captain sees a light dead ahead on a collision course with his ship.

He sends a signal: “Change your course 10 degrees east.”

The light signals back: “Change yours, 10 degrees west.”

The angry captain responds: “I’m a Navy captain! Change your course, sir!”

-“I’m a seaman, second class,” comes the reply. “Change your course, sir.”

The captain is now furious. “I’m a battleship! I’m not changing course!”

There’s one last reply. “I’m a lighthouse. Your call.”
