I don't have a real sea story but have a comment that Diego really gets a kick out of...
When I was ship scheduler I was always tormented by the crew and scientists when I changed the ship schedule. After a while I started to ignore their comments on how the schedule change ruined their vacation, kid's birthday, patriots, sox, bruins watching, kindergarten parade.....
I was talking with Diego one day about a schedule change for Oceanus when he started to go on and on about how the change was going to ruin his holiday in Ireland and his wife would be upset. I looked at him straight in the face and said "I am not interested in how the ship schedule impacts your personal life". I thought Diego's head was going to pop off... It has now become a joke with us.
