Do you know where your child is? : LUSENET : Beyond the Sidewalks : One Thread

Well,whenever a jihad goes round we seem to need to laugh & play & dance and just generally have some fun to relieve the stress.So here's a really cute story for you.


The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the maincomputers. > He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted > with a child's whispering voice. Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster > the boss asked, "Is your Daddy home?" > > "Yes", whispered the small voice. "May I talk with him?" the man > asked. > > To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No."

> > Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy > there?"

> > "Yes", came the answer. "May I talk with her?"

> > Again the small voice whispered, "no". > > Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be left > home alone, the boss decided he would just leave a message > with the person who should be there watching over the child. > > "Is there any one there besides you?" the boss asked the child.

> > "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?", asked the boss.

"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 ear piece on the phone the boss asked, "What is that noise?"

"A hello-copper", answered the whispering voice.

"What is going on there?", asked the boss, now alarmed.

In an awed whispering voice the child answered, "The search team just landed the hello-copper".

Alarmed, concerned and more than just little frustrated the boss asked, "What are they searching for"? Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle:.........."Me"

Now.I'm figuring this was Kirk,Jim,Craig and John when they were young.Am I right? Who am I missing. You know the kind-The kid that used horns to hold up the halo. I KNOW it was Nick.His mother has told me all about him.

Sharon, when I was a kid about once a month we'd make the big trip into the city to go to K-Mart. As soon as we'd walk in the door I'd break away from my mom and make a beeline for the toy aisles. When I got tired of looking around I'd head up to the courtesy desk, start crying, and tell them that I was lost. They would announce it over the PA, and then my mom would come up front and get me. I never understood why she got mad when I did it, to me it just seemed to be more efficient than wandering around the store looking for her!

I also tried to convince her that I had a rare disease that could only be treated by eating Pizza Hut pizza. She didn't fall for it, but Gramma did! Growing up next door to my grandparents was certainly an advantage. Whenever I had been bad and was due for a spanking I'd go hide out at Gramma's place.

I was actually the good one of the family. I never came home from a high school dance with 3 police cars following me, like my middle sister did!

Well, I do recall a time as a tenny bopper, I had the folks car and had double dated with some friends. On the way to drop my girlfriend off I happened to run into an off duty cop. Yeah, literally ran into him and totalled his car that he his wife had just made the final payment on and were out celebrating. Girlfriend went to the hosp. Everyone else shook up but ok. Went to the cop shop, did reports, hitchiked home, went to bed. In the AM mom wakes me up asking me where the car is. I say the cops have got it and went back to sleep. Dad gets up, sez where's the car. I say the cops have got it. They wouldn't let me go back to sleep. Don't they understand a kids gotta get some rest?
