Don’t underestimate your kids when it comes to making trouble. They’re smarter than you think, and they can really get things done when they put their mind to it – this is one such story.
The boss of a big company was surprised to learn that one of his most valuable employees had called in sick – something practically unheard of.
On top of it all, he had an urgent problem with one of the main computers and needed the employee’s help. He dialed the man’s home phone number and was greeted with a child who whispered, “Hello?”
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, “Well then, 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 anyone 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 Mommy and Daddy and the fireman”, came the whispered answer.
Growing concerned and even worried as he heard a loud noise in the background, the boss asked, “What is that noise?”
“A helicopter,” answered the whispering voice.
“My God, what is going on over there?” asked the boss, now alarmed.
In an awed whispering voice the child answered, “The search team just landed the helicopter.”
Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated the boss asked, “A search team?!? Why are they there?”
Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle, “They’re looking for me.”
