A retired lady was enjoying a cruise. While on deck she noticed a handsome, distinguished looking gentleman.
She approached a member of the crew and said: “See that gentleman, would you please seat him next to me for dinner this evening.”
“I’ll see what I can do.” the staff member said.
Later on, the woman was eating dinner and sure enough the gentleman came and sat down beside her. He turned to her and said: “I’m curious, why did you want me to sit next to you for dinner?”
