Call Center Classic:
Caller: "I deleted a file from my PC last week and I have
just realised that I need it. If I turn my system clock back
two weeks will I have my file back again?".

If that worked for my car, I'd turn it back a few days and
get rid of it. Blew the engine in it today and lost most of
the day because of it.

However, while waiting for a tow truck, I got a few hours
of way overdue sun tanning.

After the Crysler dealer told me that it would be next month
before I could get, for $200, an estimate on how much the
repair will cost,  I decided to rent a car for the duration.

Well, Budget Rental Cars has banker's hours and had
closed at 3:30 PM. However, there was a used car lot
there, and a really cute, bright red convertible. I asked how
much that one was. He quoted me just about exactly the
amount that I had budgeted for renting a car.

A few minutes later my MasterCard had a bunch more
Airmiles, and I drove off in my first convertible.
If somebody had planned to spoil my day,
then they failed miserably.

An overweight Lucy consulted her doctor for advice. The
doctor advised that she run ten miles a day for thirty days.
This, he promised, would help her lose as many as twenty

Lucy followed the doctor's advice, and, after thirty days,
she was pleased to find that she had indeed lost the pesky
twenty pounds. She phoned the doctor and thanked him for
the wonderful advice which produced such effective results.
At the end of the conversation, however, she asked one last
question: "Are you going to come pick me up, or do I have to
run home 300 Miles?"

=========================================== Thanks to Deeli's Bonehead reports: An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Fernand Etienne, 60, of Huy, belgium All kids look the same to some people April 24, 2007 - Huy, Belgium - Ananova Teachers at a Belgian nursery school panicked after a man came to pick up his granddaughter but got the wrong girl. When the parents of two-year-old Marie arrived to pick her up they were told she had already been collected by her grandfather. Teachers at Don Bosco school in Huy immediately called the police who organised a search, reports the Antwerp Gazette. While they were still searching, police received a call from Fernand Etienne, 60, to say his wife had told him the little girl he had collected was not their granddaughter. "I'm still surprised," he explained later. "The little girl has the same looks as my granddaughter - same age, blonde hair. And her name is Marie like our granddaughter. "I had no reason to suspect it was another girl since the teacher had called her for me." Mr Etienne realised something was wrong when the little girl started crying in the car and he couldn't calm her down. He called his daughter, Marie's mother, who spoke to the girl by phone and calmed her down - without realising she wasn't speaking to her own daughter. Finally, the grandmother solved the mystery and Mr Etienne hurried back to school to collect his real granddaughter and return the other Marie to her parents. ---------------------------------- This seems to happen a lot in Belgium! There was an almost identical Bonehead Award not too long ago. ===========================================

=========================================== Thanks to Rosie for this story: Although he had packed his bag for a business trip the night before, my husband planned to come home from the office before leaving. That afternoon he called to say the meeting had been canceled and on the spur of the moment we decided to spend a romantic, child-free night in a hotel. I quickly repacked his suitcase, replacing his belongings with two wine glasses, candlesticks and candles and some bubble bath. Then I dashed out to buy a bottle of wine. When I returned, the bag was gone. A note on the kitchen table read: "Sorry, hon, the business trip's on after all. I'll call you when I get there." =========================================== Get a Dish Network for as low as $19.99/month Free HD & DVR Equipment & Free installation Free Dish Network Satellite TV Systems We are nationwide Dishnetwork retailer! ================================== From the Tech Support Pits: From: Rheta Re: Lost mouse Dear webby: My grand son has lost his mouse. I think he has melinium not sure of the spelling of it. And I'm not sure of the keys that can be used to find it. Got any ideas On this problem ? Rheta Dear Rheta Eery time I lost a mouse and rebooting didn't help, plugging in a new one fixed the problem. They don't last very long, especially the cheaper ones. Worst are the $1.49 mice that get shipped with new computers. Have FUN!

Nicole Matisse, of Bloomfield Hills, is to officially graduate in the summer with a bachelor's degree in psychology. As a student at Lahser High School, Matisse had exhausted the curriculum by her junior year. Between the exams she passed on eight advanced placement courses and the eight classes she took at Oakland Community College, she had amassed enough credits to enter the university last fall as a junior. ''When I got to U-M, I only took 19 credits, and I was bored and craved more credits,'' she told The Detroit News for a Wednesday story. ''So even when I took 27 credits this semester, I felt I could have added even more.'' It's unclear whether any other students have done what Matisse will accomplish this year, but Donna Wessel Walker, assistant director of the honors program, said she's never seen it happen. ''She's taking in one semester the course load that most people take in two,'' Wessel Walker said. ''She is one determined young lady.'' Matisse's next step is to start as a first-year student at the Wayne State University law school in Detroit.

Daily tip from Dividing Up Your Ground Beef I cook up 10 pounds of ground beef at a time and then I divide it up into one pound packages (our family's size) and just freeze it. Then when I get home from work, all the hard work is done. I can make tacos, casseroles or whatever quickly by reaching into the freezer. By Valerie

A guy goes to a girl's house for the first time and she shows him into the living room. She excuses herself to go fix them a couple drinks. As he's standing there he notices a cute little vase on the mantel. He picks it up and as he's looking at it, she walks back in. He says, "What's this?" She says, "Oh, my father's ashes are in there." He turns beat red and says, "Gee, oh...I'm sorry...I..." She continues, "Yeah, he's too lazy to go to the kitchen to get an ashtray." =============================================
