Change

There’s an old sea story in the Navy about a ship’s captain who inspected his sailors and afterward told the chief boatswain that his men smelled bad. The captain suggested perhaps it would help if the sailors would change underwear occasionally.

The chief responded, “Aye, aye, sir, I’ll see to it immediately!”

The chief went straight to the sailors’ berth deck and announced, “The captain thinks you guys smell bad and wants you to change your underwear.” He continued, “Pittman, you change with Jones; McCarthy, you change with Witkowski; and Brown, you change with Schultz. Now GET TO IT!”

THE MORAL OF THE STORY IS:

Someone may come along and promise “Change,” but don’t count on things smelling any better.
