sailor's experience in the Army

The following is supposedly a true story relating to an actual sailor's experience in the Army.After turning in from a four to eight watch the seaman overslept and missed muster. When questioned he said: "Due to my metabolic inability to cope with change I did not respond to external stimuli and remained in a comatose condition." The C.P.O., who didn't understand a word, listened to this report with awe and sent the sailor to the psychiatrist.
