Old Sea Story...









There's an old sea story about a ship's Captain who inspected his sailors, and afterward told the first lieutenant that his men smelled bad.

The Captain suggested perhaps it would help if the sailors would change underwear occasionally. The “Jimmy” responded, "Aye, aye sir, I'll see to it immediately!"

The “Jimmy” went straight to the stokers mess deck and announced, "The Captain thinks you men smell bad and wants you to change your underwear."

He continued, "Garrett, you change with Shorten, Crean, you change with Ferguson, and Wong, you change with Thompson ."

THE MORAL OF THE STORY:

Someone may come along and promise "Change", but don't count on things smelling any better.
