A Private is standing outside in the smoking area, joking around with one of his buddies.
A young Lieutenant walks up to them, and asks “Private, have you got change for a dollar?”
The private looks over at him, and replies ” Yea sure buddy, no problem”.
The Lieutenant stares at him, mouth agape, then begins tearing into him. “What directly in the fuck did you call me Private? I am not your buddy, I am an Officer, and you will afford me all the respect deserving of my rank! Put your heels together and stand at attention when you address me!”
The Lieutenant takes a deep breath, and looks the Private who is now standing ramrod straight, over.
“Let me ask you again, Private, and chose your words carefully this time. Do you have change for a dollar?”
“I do not, sir!”.
