Spent Too Much Money In Army And Navy

| Friendly | January 4, 2016

(I’m in the Royal Canadian Navy, travelling on duty. I’m in ‘salt-and-peppers’ – white short-sleeved uniform shirt, black uniform trousers, peaked service cap with an anchor in the middle of the badge. This takes place in the waiting area by the gate.)

Little Boy: *looking at me for some time, then turns to his mother* “Mom, is he the pilot man?”

Mother: *looks up briefly then goes back to what she’s doing* “No, dear, he’s in the Army.”

Me: *to little boy* “In the Navy, actually. I’m a sailor.”

Mother: *to me, annoyed* “Army, Navy, it’s all the same!”
