26. Sunk Him
“My wife and I were taking an evening cruise for adults in Portsmouth Bay. The ship drove around the shipyard, where my submarine and several others were stationed.
My wife and I are having a quiet drink when a really loud know-it-all starts spouting misinformation about each submarine we are driving by. Calling them all the wrong class, wrong names, etc.
When he literally points to my submarine and says ‘and that is a 637 class,’ my wife finally speaks up and says ‘actually that is a 688.’
The guy gets all gruff and says ‘well how would you know?.’ My wife smiles, hugs my arm and says sweetly, ‘That’s my husband’s submarine, it is the Minneapolis St Paul, SNN-708.’
He turned beat red while his date laughed.
