An officer in the navy had dreamed fom childhood of commanding a great battleship one day. He finally achieved his dream and was given commission of the newest and proudest ship in the fleet.

One stormy niight, the captain was on duty on the bridge when he spotted a strange light rapidly closing with his own vessel. As his ship plowed through the giant waves, the light rose and fell just above the horizon of the sea. He ordered his signalman to flash a message to the unidentified craft on his port side, "Alter your course ten degrees to the south."

Within seconds a reply came, "Alter your course ten degrees to the north." Determined that his ship would never take a backseat to any other, the captain snapped a second order, "Alter course ten degrees__I am the CAPTAIN?" The response was beamed back, "Alter your course ten degrees--I am Seaman Third Class Smith." by this time the light was growing ever brighter and larger.

Infuriated, the captain grabbed the signal light and personally signaled, "Alter course, I am a battle ship." The reply came just as quickly, "Alter your course. I am a lighthouse."
