I left Montreal heading toward
Quebec City, when I decided
to stop at a comfort station. The first stall was occupied,
so I went into the second one. I was no sooner seated than
I heard a voice from thenext stall: "Hi, how are you doing?"
Well, I am not the type to chat
with strangers in highway
comfort stations, and I really don't know quite what
possessed me, but I answered, a little embarrassed: "Not
Next the stranger said: "And,
what are you up to?" Talk
about your dumb questions! I was really beginning to
think this was too weird! So I said: "Well, just like
you I'm driving east."
Then, I heard the stranger say,
"Look, I'll call you back,
there's some idiot in the next stall answering all the
questions I'm asking you."

A veterinarian surgeon had had
a hell of a day, but when he got
home from tending to all the sick animals his wife was waiting
with a long cool drink and a romantic candle-lit dinner, after
which they had a few more drinks and went happily to bed.
At about 2:00 in the morning,
the phone rang. "Is this the
vet?" asked an elderly lady's voice.
"Yes, it is", replied the vet, "Is this an emergency?"
"Well, sort of", said the elderly
lady, "there's a whole bunch of
cats on the roof outside making a terrible noise mating and I
can't get to sleep. What can I do about it?"
There was a sharp intake of breath
from the vet, who then
patiently replied "Open the window and tell them they're wanted
on the phone"
"Really?" said the elderly lady, "Will that stop them?"
"Should do," said the vet, "- IT STOPPED ME!"

Subj: Blonde Gets A Cell Phone (S364b)
From: Imogenelumen on 1/20/2004
A young man wanted to get his
beautiful blonde wife, Susie,
something nice for their first wedding anniversary. So he
decided to buy her a cell phone. He showed her the phone
and explained to her all of its features. Susie was excited
to receive the gift and simply adored her new phone.
The next day Susie went shopping.
Her phone rang and, to
her astonishment, it was her husband on the other end. "Hi
Susie," he said, "how do you like your new phone?" Susie
replied, "I just love it! It's so small and your voice is
clear as a bell, but there's one thing I don't understand
"What's that, sweetie?" asked her husband.
"How did you know I was at Walmart?"
Subj: Wife Seeks Gypsie Healer (S138, S426b)
From: JOKE-OF-THE-DAY.com on 09/19/1999
A caravan of gypsies arrived
in a small town in Kansas. A
local lady heard about this band of mystics and decided to
see if a particular miracle worker tagged along with them.
Asking around for this healer, she found herself inside a
tent. "Are You Bernardo the Miracle Man?" she asked the old
"Yes, I am," he replied, pleased
to find someone interested
in his services.
"Is it true that you clasped
the ears of a deaf man and gave
him the ability to hear?"
"Yes, it is true," said Bernardo.
"Is it true that you brushed
your fingers against the eyelids
of a blind man and gave him the ability to see?"
"Yes, that is also true," said Bernardo.
At this point she went outside
of the tent and rolled in her
husband who sat in a wheelchair looking lifeless. "Well then,
do you think you could help my husband?"
"I can try," Bernardo said. "Is he paralyzed?"
"Even worse," she replied. "He works for the phone company."

Subj: Elderly Lady's Phone Wouldn't Ring (S388, S773)
From: Ptm1225 on 6/21/2004
and From: virv on 11/6/2011
An elderly lady phoned her telephone
company to report that
her telephone failed to ring when her friends called - and
that on the few occasions when it did ring, her pet dog
always moaned right before the phone rang. The telephone
repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this
psychic dog or senile elderly lady. He climbed a nearby
telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and dialed the
subscriber's house. The phone didn't ring right away, but
then the dog moaned loudly and the telephone began to ring.
Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:
1. The dog was tied to the telephone system's ground wire
via a steel chain and collar.
2. The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.
3. The dog was receiving 9 volts of signaling current when
the phone number was called.
4. After a couple of such jolts, the dog would start moaning
and then urinate on himself and the ground.
5. The wet ground would complete the circuit, thus causing
the phone to ring. Which demonstrates that some problems
CAN be fixed by pissing and moaning.

Subj: Hands-Free Cell Phones (S355, S595b)
From: DoctorDebt on 11/20/2003
and From: cappucinid on 6/17/2008
I don't know if you've heard,
but starting July 1, 2008 (in
the US) you will no longer be able to use a cell phone while
driving unless you have a "hands free" adapter. I went to
Circuit City and they wanted $50 for a headset with a boom
microphone for my cell phone. I have come up with an
alternative, working through Office Depot.
These kits are compatible with
any mobile phone and one size
fits all. I paid $0.08 each because I bought in quantity.
I'm selling them for $1.00. I tried them out on Erickson,
Motorola, ? Nokia Sprint PCS phones and they worked perfectly.

Subj: Eliminating Speakerphones At Work (S323)
From: jerry on 4/1/2003
Have you ever worked in an office
where someone insisted
upon listening to their voice mail using the speakerphone
(at full volume, naturally)?
It can really begin to bother
you after a while. However,
I found a fairly easy fix for that, though. I have a
young lady call his desk when he's not there and leave a
message like this: "Hi, this is Candy from 1-900-HOT-BABE.
You haven't paid for the 'toys' we sent you, you naughty
boy. You wouldn't want me to come over there and spank you,
It is the last time you hear that particular speakerphone.

Subj: If Your Phone Number Is In The Book (S322b)
From: JBCARY1 on 3/28/2003
Go to www.google.com then type
in your phone number in the
Search field (entering your full telephone number separated
by dashes i.e. 404-555-0000). If your phone number is listed
it will show your name and address and give you two map
options, Yahoo and MapQuest.
See how accurate the map is linked
to your phone number.
There is a new feature that makes it possible to type a
telephone number into Google's search bar, click the search
button, and have a MapQuest page returned as a result.
Any person wishing to discover
the physical location of a
phone number, be it a home or business address, could use
this feature to locate a physical street address, and
receive explicit directions on how to get there from any-
where in the country. One positive use of this feature
could be to determine the location of, say, a party for
whom you may only have a telephone number. On a negative
note, this feature could also be used by an angry party
to find out where you live.
Google has made available an
option that will allow anyone
to remove their telephone number from the database that is
linked to the mapping feature. You will first need to check
if your number is listed in this manner by attempting a
search - entering your full telephone number separated by
dashes (e. g., 404-555-0000). If the number appears in the
mapping database, an icon resembling a telephone will appear
next to the first or second entry on the results page.
Clicking on this icon will take
you to a page containing a
description of the service,and a link to request your number
be removed from the database.

his own home telephone number on all recorded messages

The judge also ordered the company
to stop calling
people without their explicit consent and to pay
Shield's legal fees. To date Shield has won nearly

Subj: The Difference Between Anger And Exasperation (S125b, S322)
From: KMacinty on 6/8/99
and From: LABLaughs.com on 3/27/2003
A young girl asked her father,
dad, what's the difference
between anger and exasperation?"
The father replied, "It is mostly
a matter of degree. Let
me show you what I mean." With that the father went to the
telephone an dialed a number at random. To the man who
answered the phone, he said, "Hello, is Melvin there?"
The man answered, "There is no
one living here named Melvin.
Why don't you learn to look up numbers before you dial them?"
"See," said the father to his
daughter. "That man was not a
bit happy with our call. He was probably very busy with
something and we annoyed him. Now watch . . . " The father
dialed the number again. "Hello, is Melvin there?" asked
"Now look here!" came the heated
reply. "You just called
this number and I told you that there is no Melvin here!
You've got a lot of nerve calling again!" The receiver
slammed down hard.
The father turned to his daughter
and said, "You see, that
was anger. Now I'll show you what exasperation means."
He dialed the same number, and
when a violent voice roared,
"Hello!" The father calmly said, "Hello, this is Melvin.
Have there been any calls for me?"
Subj: The Pope And Chief Rabbi Phone The Lord
From: humorlist-digest V2 #88 on 98-04-10
The Chief Rabbi of Israel and
the Pope are in a meeting in
Rome. The Rabbi notices an unusually fancy phone on a side
table in the Pope's private chambers.
"What is that phone for?" he asks the pontiff.
"It's my direct line to the Lord!"
The Rabbi is skeptical, and the
Pope notices. The Holy
Father insists that the Rabbi try it out, and, indeed, he
is connected to the Lord. The Rabbi holds a lengthy
discussion with Him. After hanging up the Rabbi says.
"Thank you very much. This is great! But listen, I want
to pay for my phone charges."
The Pope, of course refuses,
but the Rabbi is steadfast and
finally, the pontiff gives in. He checks the counter on
the phone and says: "All right! The charges were 100,000
The Chief Rabbi gladly hands
over a packet of bills. A few
months later, the Pope is in Jerusalem on an official visit.
In the Chief Rabbi's chambers he sees a phone identical to
his and learns it also is a direct line to the Lord.
The Pope remembers he has an
urgent matter that requires
divine consultation and asks if he can use the Rabbi's phone.
The Rabbi gladly agrees, hands him the phone, and the Pope
chats away. After hanging up, the Pope offers to pay for
the phone charges. This time, the Chief Rabbi refuses to
accept payment. After the Pope insists, the Chief Rabbi
relents and looks on the phone counter and says: "1 Shekel
The Pope looks surprised: "Why so cheap!?"
The Rabbi smiles and says, "It's a local call."

Finally....a worthwhile bit of advice:
Andy Rooney's tips for Telemarketers
Three Little Words That Work !!
(1)The three little words are:
"Hold On, Please..."
Saying this, while putting down your phone and walking
off (instead of hanging-up immediately) would make each
telemarketing call so much more time-consuming that boiler
room sales would grind to a halt.
Then when you eventually hear
the phone company's "beep-
beep-beep" tone, you know it's time to go back and hang
up your handset, which has efficiently completed its task.

Subj: You Won't Believe This Phone Bill (S320b)
From: BennoRo on 3/14/2003
Source: Cathryn Conroy, CompuServe News Editor
There's no avoiding taxes and death--and apparently phone
bills. David Towles, who passed on to his great reward
in December 1997 at the age of 60, received a Sprint phone
bill last week. For 12 cents. For a call he made (supposedly)
on February 16, five years after he died! Sprint did a good
job of tracking him down to try to get their 12 cents. The
address was right: Hillside Cemetery, Evergreen Section,
Auburn, Mass. 01501.
Cemetery Superintendent Wayne
Bloomquist told The Associated
Press, "Our clients here don't usually get mail. Maybe we
should start putting mailboxes on the monuments." Now there's
another problem. Because Towles hasn't paid the bill yet,
he's been hit with late charges. He now owes $3.95, reports
AP. The bill has been turned over to the Auburn town clerk.
