Private affairs!

In the Army, we had to obtain the customary written approval from the commanding officer before anybody got married.  Accordingly, one of my colleagues sent his application to his boss.  He got his OK, but with a remark that read, "Recommended.  But don't repeat it."

Due to manpower shortage at our Air Force base in England, the commander nixed all afternoons off.  The same day, an airman broached the subject with him.

"Didn't you hear what I said this morning?" our commander snapped.  "You'd better have a great reason."

"Sir," said the airman, "my wife is expecting to get pregnant this afternoon, and I want to be there when it happens."

He got the afternoon off.
