It was a dark, stormy, night. The Marine was on his first assignment, and it was guard duty. A General stepped out taking his dog for a walk. The nervous young Private snapped to attention, made a perfectsalute, and snapped out, Sir, Good Evening, Sir!The General, out for some relaxation, returned the salute and said Good evening soldier, nice night, isnt it?Well it wasnt a nice night, but the Private wasnt going to disagree with the General, so the he saluted again and replied, Sir, Yes Sir!The General continued, You know theres something about a stormy night that I find soothing, its really relaxing. Dont you agree?The Private didnt agree, but then the private was just a private, and responded, Sir, Yes Sir!The General, pointing at the dog, This is a Golden Retriever, the best type of dog to train.The Private glanced at the dog, saluted yet again, and said, Sir, Yes Sir!The General continued I got this dog for my wife.The Private simply said, Good trade, Sir!
