Saying Sorry!

On one of the old Clyde steamers, the man at the wheel was being pestered by the stupid questions of a pompous, English lady tourist. He answered all her questions briefly but patiently for a long time, indicating quite clearly by the curtness of his manner that she was seriously hindering him in his responsible work.

The passenger refused, however, to desist and haughtily continued with her cross-examination until, losing his temper, the sailor turned on her and - in language coloured by the warmth of his feelings - told her exactly where she (and all her kindred) could go.
In great indignation she immediately reported the matter to the Captain, who did all he could to conciliate her, promising that he would see that his subordinate offered her an ample apology for his conduct and the violence of his language.
Somewhat mollified, the tourist thereupon retired to the Saloon and proceeded with some agitation to recount her experience to her fellow passengers. Just as she was finishing the narrative, a burly figure in dripping oilskins appeared at the Saloon door and called over to his former tormentor to make his apology.
    "Are ye the leddy A telt ti gang ti blazes?"
The lady nodded, and awaited the promised apology.
    "Weill" continued the sailor " the Captain says ye neidna bother!"
