A great story

My boss's husband told me this great story from when he was in the Navy.

So one day one of the cooks was making food and, in a freak accident, a small fragment of egg shell got in his eye. It was this huge ordeal and very painful for him, and of course, later, there was all this paperwork that had to be filled out to document the accident.

Days later, they're all in formation and this cook finds out that he's being awarded the purple heart.

The reason? Whoever wrote up the accident report wrote that the cook had gotten a "shell fragment" in his eye and all the brass assumed that this referred to shrapnel rather than yolknel.

He did the right thing and returned the purple heart (which would have entitled him to extra benefits and pension for life), but got a great story out of it for life.
