When I saw this picture, I was reminded of an old short story – really a joke – I heard many years ago.  It was about a ship at sea and the lighthouse.  If I can recall it correctly, I’ll repost it here.  Sometimes being big, in authority, and wanting to have our own way is not the best thing to do.  Sometimes we eat crow doing so.

Ships At Sea

Helmsman:  “Captain, that light off our bow is signaling us to steer ten degrees to port.”
Captain:  “Hold steady.  Signalman, tell that ship we are not changing course.  Instruct them to steer ten degrees to port.
Signalman:  “Aye, aye, Sir.”  Flashity, flashity, flashity…  “Signal sent, Sir.”
Helmsman:  “Captain, the light is telling us again to steer ten degrees to port.”  
Captain:  “Maintain course!  Signalman, tell that ship we are a US Navy ship and to steer ten degrees to port.  We are not changing course.”
Signalman:  “Aye, aye, Sir.”  Flashity, flashity, flashity…  “Signal sent, Sir.”
Helmsman:  “Captain, they still refuse to move.”
Captain:  “Signalman, tell that SOB that I am an Admiral aboard the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise.  I’m ordering you to steer ten degrees to port.  We will not change course!”
Signalman:  “Aye, aye, Sir.”   Flashity, flashity, flashity…  “Signal sent, Sir.”
The reply:  “I’m a lighthouse…it’s your call.”
