 “Look, I don’t know what kind of bleeding-heart pansy crap they’re teaching sailors in boot camp these days, but I don’t call anyone by his first name,” the chief scowled. “It breeds familiarity, and that leads to a breakdown in authority.

 “Now that we’ve got that straight, what’s your last name?”

 The seaman sighed. “Darling, My name is John Darling, Chief.”

 “Okay, John, here’s what I want you to do ….”
