The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an urgent problem with one of the main computers.
He dialed the employee’s home phone number and was greeted with a child’s 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, “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 else there in your house?” 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 very alarmed.
In an awed hushed voice the child answered, “The search team just landed the hello-copper.”
Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated the boss asked, “What are they searching for?”
Still whispering, the young voice replied, along with a muffled giggle: “Me.”August 24, 2003 at 1:08 am #7901ressaParticipant

Linda what a great story. As the mother of 3 children two of which are still at home. My oldest is 23 however, the others
9 and 11. I sure can relate. My son now 9 is quite the little
prankster. He once was out playing in the yard he was 3. we had a litter of puppies and he was enjoying playing with them.
I looked out the window and he was gone. I searched the farm for him. The neighbors helped and family also. I was in tears and after about 30 minutes had picked up the phone to call the police when someone yelled they had found him. He had crawed into the box with the mother dog and was fast asleep with the puppies all over him. Nothing was showing but his little sneakers.
What a scare that was.
