This week, our phones went dead and I had to contact the telephone repair
people. They promised to be out between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00p.m. When I asked

smiled knowingly and nodded, "That's why we ask."


I work with an individual who plugged her power strip back into itself and
for the life of her couldn't understand why her system would not turn on.


When my husband and I arrived at an automobile dealership to pick up our
car, we were told the keys had been locked in it. We went to the service
department and found a mechanic working feverishly to unlock the driver's
side door. As I watched from the passenger side, I instinctively tried the
door handle and discovered that it was unlocked. "Hey," I announced to the
