Change Your Course - is it a battle of wills … or won'ts? And who in their right mind would say "no" to a 240,000 ton tanker in the first place?

Change Your Course

Change Your Course – is it a battle of wills … or won’ts?

One night the captain of a tanker saw a light dead ahead. He directed his signalman to flash a signal to the light which went “Change course 10 degrees South.”

The reply was quickly flashed back, “You change course 10 degrees North.”

The captain was a little annoyed at this reply and sent a further message, “I am a captain. Change course 10 degrees South.”

Back came the reply, “I am an able-seaman. Change course 10 degrees North.”

The captain was outraged at this reply and sent a message, “I am a 240,000 ton tanker. CHANGE course 10 degrees South!”

Back came the reply, “I am a LIGHTHOUSE. Change course 10 degrees North!!!!”
