There was a tale I heard about a lady 2/0 who, when acting for the mate one morning was giving a bosun/CPO his orders for the day and was obviously not getting through, came out with the statement "when I give you an instruction Mr ....... please look at my epaulettes and not at my chest"
Happy days !
