Who the REAL Boss Is!

Topic: Who the REAL Boss Is!

WHEN I WAS SERVING with the U.S. Navy in Scotland, my wife gave birth to our youngest daughter in the local hospital. Before they were discharged, the nursing sister gave me a national health card for the baby, plus a certificate entitling her to free milk. I protested that, as American citizens in the armed forces, we were not eligible for and could not accept benefits intended for British subjects. With a glint of cold steel in her eyes, the sister replied, "Ye may be a Yank, and there's nay a thing we can do about that. Ye may well not be eligible for anything. But the wee lass here is a Scot, and she is entitled to it all, Yank. And don't ye be forgetting it!"

With my "wee Scots lass" in my arms and national health card and certificate in hand, this Yank made a hasty retreat.
