“I just joined the navy out of spite. I’m a petty officer!”

The position of “petty officer” has an obvious joke. “I’m going to join the Navy purely out of spite. I’m longing to become a Petty Officer” was posted on Reddit—Jokes on May 11, 2019.


Wikipedia: Petty officer
A petty officer (PO) is a non-commissioned officer in many navies and is given the NATO rank denotion OR-5. In many nations, they are typically equal to a corporal or sergeant in comparison to other military branches. Often they may be superior to a seaman, generally the (or one of the) lowest ranks in a navy, and subordinate to a more senior non-commissioned officer, such as a chief petty officer.
