The boss wondered why one of his most valued employees was absent but had not phoned in sick. So hedialled the employee's home phone number and
was greeted with achild's whisper. 'Hello?'
'Is your daddy home?' 'Yes, he's out in the garden'' whispered the small voice.
'May I talk with him?'
The child whispered,'No'
So the boss asked, 'Well, is your Mommy there? 'Yes, but she's out in the garden, too'
& The boss asked; '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 elsethere?'
'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 Mommy and Daddy and the Police Dog Man'
Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in thebackground, the boss asked,
'What is that noise?' 'It's a helicopter ' answered the whispering voice
'What is going on there?' demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive. 'The search team just landed in a helicopter'
'Asearch team?' said the boss. 'What are they searching for?'
Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle....
I used to work for a major car company & every once in awhile I had to goto their headquarters. They had a similar promotional poster with three (locked) gears hanging in the halls. You'd think that a car company would know better. Marketing genius right there...
