The Captain and the Coffee Making Seaman

The commanding officer of a ship in the U. S. Navy was about to start the morning briefing to the wardroom. While waiting for the coffee machine to finish its brewing, the Captain decided to pose a question to all assembled.  He explained that his wife had been a bit frisky the night before and he failed to get his usual amount of sound sleep. He posed the question of just how much of love-making was ‘work’ and how much of it was ‘pleasure?’

The executive officer chimed in with 75-25% in favour of work. A lieutenant said it was 50-50%. The operations officer responded with 25-75% in favour of pleasure, depending on his state of inebriation at the time.

There being no consensus, the Captain turned to the Seaman who was in charge of making the coffee. What was HIS opinion? Without any hesitation, the young Seaman responded, ‘Sir, it has to be 100% pleasure.’

The Captain was surprised and, as you might guess, asked ‘Why?’

‘Well, sir, if there was any work involved, the officers would have me doing it for them.’

The room fell silent.
