Frustrated at always being corrected by my hubby, I decided the next time it happened I would have a comeback. That moment finally arrived, and I was ready.
"You know," I challenged, "even a broken clock is right once a day."
He looked at me and replied, "Twice."
Company Role Models
My company had a successful year, and at the annual meeting, employees eagerly awaited the general manager's report on the performance of our branch.
"You are the role models of our company," he proudly announced. "I can tell you that whenever the owners talk about you and your office, they use nothing but expletives." A stunned silence followed.
Then the manager blushed, cleared his throat, and added,
"I meant superlatives."
The start of the new school term always brings out the most interesting questions for computer consultants on campus. The predominant questions this term pertain to "getting into" email and how to access the "Information Highway."
An obviously distraught student came into the consulting office yesterday complaining that his email wasn't working; his attempts to get tickets for an on-campus concert kept resulting in returned mail.
He showed me the mail address he was attempting to reach. I asked him where he obtained such an unusual mail address.
He replied, "The sign said, 'begins@7:30P.M.'"
Trying to come to the aid of his Dad, who was stopped by an officer for speeding, the little boy shouted:
"Yeah? Well, if we were speeding, so were you!"
