Funny Phone Calls
One March evening, the boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers, dialled the employee's home phone number and was greeted with a child's whisper.
'Is your daddy home?' he asked.
'Yes', whispered the small voice.
'May I talk with him?'
The child whispered, 'No.'
Surprised, and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, 'Is your Mommy there?'
'May I talk with her?'
Again the small voice whispered, 'No.'
Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss asked, 'Is anybody else there?'
'Yes', whispered the child, 'a policeman.'
Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, 'May I speak with the policeman?'
'No, he's busy', whispered the child.
'Busy doing what?'
'Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman, 'came the whispered answer.
Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a Helicopter through the earpiece on the phone the boss asked, 'What is that noise?'
'Hello-copper' answered the whispering voice.
'What is going on there?' asked the boss, now truly alarmed.
In an awed whispering voice the child answered, 'The search team just landed the hello-copper.'
Alarmed, concerned, and even more then just a little frustrated the boss asked, 'What are they searching for?'
Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle: 'ME.'
Solar-powered payphone in Lake Victoria, Uganda
Last month, a world-wide telephone survey was conducted by the UN. The only question asked was:
"Would you please give your honest opinion about possible solutions to the food shortage in the rest of the world?"
The good psychic would pick up the phone before it rang. Of course, it is possible there was no-one on the other line.
Once she said 'God Bless you' I said, 'I didn't sneeze' She looked deep into
my eyes and said, 'You will, eventually.' And damn it if she wasn't right. Two
days later I sneezed.
A man in Hamburg, Germany kept getting phoned, but when he picked up the receiver there was no-one on the other end of the phone. To begin with he paid the phone company to block the number. However, it was expensive just to stop one nuisance call, so he phoned the police.
The police soon tracked the calls to a barber's shop. What happened was that every time someone paid for the haircut by credit card, the credit card machine erroneously dialled the wrong number. What Will and Guy cannot understand is why nobody at the barber's or the credit card company noticed the problem. Fortunately, there was a happy outcome and the barber's credit card phone was re-programmed.
Bordeaux Woman's Phone Bill: Please Pay 12 Quadrillion Euros
A woman in south-west France, who received a telephone bill of nearly 12 quadrillion euros, has had the real amount she owed waived - after the company admitted its mistake.
Solenne San Jose, from Pessac, a suburb of Bordeaux, said she received a huge shock when she opened the bill for 11,721,000,000,000,000 euros (£9.4qn).
The former teaching assistant said she 'almost had a heart attack. There were so many zeroes I couldn't even work out how much it was.'
The phone company, Bouygues Telecom, initially told her there was nothing they could do to amend the computer-generated statement and later offered to set up instalments to pay off the bill.
Will and Guy understand that Bouygues Telecom has also apologised for the gaffe, which it says was down to a printing error and a subsequent misunderstanding between the client and staff at their call centre.
