What Time is it?

On some bases, the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian, aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle.

One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, "What time is it?"

The tower responded, "Who's calling?"

The aircraft replied, "What difference does it make?"

The tower replied, "It makes a lot of difference...
If it's an American Airlines flight, it's 3 o'clock.
If it's an Air Force plane, it's 1500 hours.
If it's a Navy aircraft, it's 6 bells.
If it's an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3.
If it's a Marine Corps aircraft, it's Thursday afternoon and 120 minutes to "Happy Hour."

    A husband read an article to his wife about how many words women use a day... 30,000 to a man's 15,000. The wife replied, "The reason has to be because we have to repeat everything to men... The husband then turned to his wife and asked, "What?"

  17. Standards are really difficult.
    Like meters and yards.
    Like miles and kilometers.

    Like like or dislike.
