Dead ahead through the pitch-black night, a captain sees a light on a collision course with his ship. Reaching for the radio, he says "Change your course ten degrees east."
"Change yours ten degrees west," comes the reply.
The captain responds, "I'm a naval captain! Change your course sir!"
"I'm a seaman second class," the reply comes back. "Change your course, sir."
The captain is furious. "I'm a battleship! I'm not changing course!"
The man replies, "I'm in a lighthouse. Your call."
