Anybody home?

Anybody home?

I heard this from my uncle John Herbert. You can’t offend anyone
with it.

A
telephone sales person makes a call to an unknown prospect and a very small,
very soft, very quiet, and obviously young person answers the phone.

Sales person: Hello, may I speak to
the man of the house please?

Youngster: (whispering) No, he’s
busy.

Sales person: Well then, can I please
speak to your mother?

Youngster: (in a whisper) She’s busy
too.

Sales person: I see, how about your
brother? Can I speak to him?

Youngster: (whispering) No. He’s
busy too.

Sales person: (losing patience) Is
your sister there? Can I talk to her?

Youngster: (in a whisper) She’s busy
too.

Sales person: ( by now quite exasperated)
What are all these people doing that keeps them so busy?!!!

Youngster: (still whispering) Looking
for me.
