When one of his employees didn’t show up to work one day without phoning in, his boss called his home phone number, and was greeted with a child’s whispered “Hello?”
The boss asked “Is your Daddy home?” to which the small voice replied “Yes”.
The man asked “Can I please speak to him?”, but to his surprise, the small voice whispered “No.”
Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked “What about your Mommy, is she there?”
“Yes”, came the answer. “May I talk with her?” Again the small voice whispered, “no”.
Growing a bit concerned, the boss asked “Is there anyone there besides you?”
“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.
Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated, the boss asked “Why are they there?”
Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle:
“They’re looking for me!”
