christsake is on a distinguished road
some people just don't listen

Guy I'm going to Florida with, me as mate. We tie up to a Army barge and are rafted off two other boats. Along comes another, and we know there is no anchoring where we are, so he will have to tie up to us. He does. Says "Wake me in the AM and I will make coffee for everyone."
Me "Make it now.
Says he "No, wake me in the morning before we get started and I will make coffee."
Me "Make it now."
Says he..." I'll make coffee in the morning!"
Me "make it now".

Morning comes. I hear Santa's reindeer on the roof...no..I wake from my dream and scramble to the deck ( I learned to sleep with my cloths on.) to see the boss has one line already off, motor going, and he tells me to get the bow line. I do. And we are off, in the fog, down the Hudson! The neighbor wakes up and is bewildered to be in the middle of the Hudson, secured to another boat, when I say "Got coffee?" He just looked bewildered, then pissed off.
My boss did these things the whole trip, and this was just one exciting part of it.
