The Five Most Dangerous Things You'll Ever Hear in the US Navy...

A Seaman saying, "I learned this in Boot Camp..."
A Petty Officer saying, "Trust me, Sir..."
A Lieutenant (JG) saying, "Based on my experience..."
A Lieutenant saying, "I was just thinking..."
A Chief chuckling, "Watch this shit..."

Jerry: You're right! Immediately after these utterances, the wiser Officer/Enlisted Man could be heard muttering, "s#it, oh dear!"

Because that ain't dangerous. Its just the dummy's fault that does volunteer. Its the comment that "Thank you for volunteering" when you didn't that is a problem.

Was almost as bad as a Chief with a stern look saying "I think we might have a problem"......

Sigh, I once sent an E-1 down 1/2 mile of access road to our missile launch facility to get the mail and sunday paper, poor kid. I also sent one to the heli pad to get the 5 gallon bucket of prop wash.......

Oh man, the list goes on in that regards. We would also send them for a bucket of steam, canned steam, bulkhead remover, line stretcher, 50 feet of chow line, 50 feet of water line, relative bearing grease, the list goes on. Of course someone would also be stainding mail watch on the forecastle with a boat hook, life jacket, battle helment and a lifeline. Then there was the sea bat.

And I don't know about you guys, but in the airline business, you always told them they could find this item "in the hangar basement".
Which, of course, did not exist.

The sound powered phone batteries one was always fun because no matter where you sent them they would get sent to another department. It usually ended up with them showing back up in about 3 or 4 hours.

A bucket of gland seal was a good one to, but if you didnt work in the engine rooms you wouldnt understand most of the joke.

I think Vic remembers this one from another forum.

"4 Navy Rules for a Gunfight"

1. Put to sea.
2. Send in the Marines.
3. Drink Coffee.
4. Go to the bar and take credit for the magnificent victory.

In the Army we would send someone over to the First Sgt. to get the Cannon Inventory and the Cannon Report. The First Shirt would tell him what the inventory was and when he asked for the report the First Sgt. would say, "Here's the Cannon Report........BOOOOOM!!!!"

Please add: mail buoy watch and parking lot watch--no one is allowed in after midnight.

My personal favorite was the mess cook who had to mop the mess deck during a tropical storm. They gave him a swab, a wringer, and a bucket on wheels. I don't know if his boss was messing with him or if he was just plain stupid, but that kid chased that bucket around for at least 30 minutes.

I always thought sending someone after a box of grid squares was a good one. There's also sending someone out with a hammer and a piece of chalk to check for soft spots in the armor, handing them a trash bag and telling them to get an exhaust sample and turn it into PLL, or have them jump up and down on top of a M981 to check the shocks. One of the best ones has to be sending a private after chem light batteries.

Regarding the original post, the same holds true in the Army.
