Aye Aye Captain vs "Yes Dear"

I have limited success converting a passenger into a crew. But failing bad recently.

Wifey at the helm, I gave out an order "10 degrees to port".
Wifey: Yes Dear.

Shouldn't she say: Aye Aye Captain or at Least Aye Aye Sir. It really ruined the moment. We were in the cockpit not in the bedroom. We need a course for "Wife School for Skipper"

Errr.... well I think... errr... no... I ... erhmm... well...

Yes dear works for me. It's better than, "Shut up and go take care of the kids, Brian. I'm driving this damned boat and if you don't like it then there's the shore - get to swimmin'!"

How did you get her to say 'yes dear'?

There are SO many things worse that 'yes dear'..... count your blessings.

The whole idea of the response is to acknowledge that they have heard you. Even better is if they repeat back what you are saying to verify that they heard correctly. I have been able to catch a few wrong courses with this. And if she throws in a "dear" at the end, that is great.

Hmmmm.......... Captains, looks like I may be ahead of you on this.

I bet you were a bit cheap not to send her to Wife School before you married.

YouTube - Wife School

It ain't my fault. You are on your own.

I agree, in time I will have her to reply "Turning 10 degrees to Port". At least when I were to crew on other'sship, I always repeat the captain's command.
