Bad joke of the day


The Captain called in the Sergeant. "Sergeant, I've received a telegram that Private Jones' mother died yesterday. Could you tell him and send him in to see me."
The Sergeant calls the morning drill and lines up all the troops. "Listen men!" he shouts. "Johnson, report to the mess for instructions! Smith, report to Personnel to sign some papers! The rest of you, report to the vehicle depot for maintenance! Oh by the way,  Jones, your mother died, report to the Captain!"
Later that day, the Captain called the Sergeant into his office. "Sergeant, that was a pretty cold way to inform Jones that his mother died. Could you be a bit more tactful next time, please." "Yes Sir!" replied the Sergeant.
A few months later, the Captain called the Sergeant in again. "Sergeant, I've received a telegram that Private McGrath's mother died yesterday. Could you tell him and send him in to see me. This time be more tactful." "Yes Sir!" replied the Sergeant.
The Sergeant calls the morning drill and lines up all the troops. "Listen men!" he shouts."Everybody with a mother, take two steps forward. NOT SO FAST, McGrath!"
