An army private went to see the Medical Captain to get a new pair of glasses.
The Medical Captain, thinking the man looked rather familiar, went through his record book of record and saw that the private had only been issued a new pair of glasses a month ago.
He asked the private about this and the private stuttered back in reply, “Yes sir, b.. b.. but I got them b..broken in an accident.,”.
“Accident, what kind of an accident?” the Captain asked.
The Captain looked in his guide to accident definitions and glossaries (the army think of everything don’t they) and asked the private what kind of accident it was.
“Was this a road march accident, firing range accident, a drill accident?” the Captain asked him.
“N.. n.. no nothing of those…” the private said.
“Well then, what is it man?” the Captin shouted at him.
“I’d rather not tell you sir…” the private replied, shyly.
“Well, if there are no satisfactory explanations, there will be no new glasses”, the Captain said, getting ready to stand up. “I have a busy day and I have to see my patients now”.
“No, no sir wait, I broke them when I was kissing my girl”, the private blurted out.
“Don’t be daft man, that’s ridiculous! How could you break your glasses kissing a girl?”
“Well sir”, the private stuttered back, “you see, she crossed her legs…..”
