Navy Chief & the new guy

The  Navy Chief noticed a new seaman and barked at him, "Get over  here! What's your name sailor?"

"John," the new seaman replied.

"Look,  I don't know what kind of bleeding-heart pansy crap they're  teaching sailors in boot camp now 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. I  refer to my sailors by their last names only; Smith, Jones,  Baker, whatever. And you are to refer to me  as 'Chief'. Do I make myself clear?"

"Aye, Aye Chief!"

"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....."
