In The Navy.

This is the actual radio conversation of a US naval ship with Canadian authorities off the coast of Newfoundland in October 1995. Radio conversation released by the Chief of Naval Operations, 10-10-95.
    CANADIANS: Please divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.

    AMERICANS: Recommend you divert your course 15 degrees to the north to avoid a collision.

    CANADIANS: Negative. You will have to divert your course 15 degrees to the south to avoid a collision.

    AMERICANS: This is the captain of a U.S. Navy ship. I say again, divert YOUR course.

    CANADIANS: No, I say again, you divert YOUR course.

    AMERICANS: This is the Aircraft Carrier U.S.S. Lincoln, the second largest ship in the United States' Atlantic Fleet. We are accompanied with three Destroyers, three Cruisers and numerous support vessels. I DEMAND that you change your course 15 degrees north. I say again, that’s one-five degrees north, or counter-measures will be undertaken to ensure the safety of this ship.

    CANADIANS: This is a lighthouse. Your call.
