>From Karen I was on the phone trying to set up a furniture delivery. "If you would like to arrange a delivery date, please press one," the automated voice prompted me. "If you would like to confirm delivery, please press two." At that moment my three-year-old daughter let out an ear-piercing shriek. "I'm sorry," the automated voice said, "that is not a valid response."

>From Enrica I KNOW my company has made a big effort to be family friendly, but I was baffled when I read this holiday announcement posted on the bulletin board: "All employees are invited to the annual Family Day and BBQ party on August 4. All children under the age of ten will receive a gift from the CEO. Employees who have no children may bring grandchildren."

Reported by Walter, the Stonecarver An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Princess Marks, 25, of Lake Charles, Louisiana Woman abandoned kids in car so she could perform oral sex on boyfriend in his car CALCASIEU PARISH SHERIFF'S OFFICE Princess Marks, 25, of Lake Charles, La., was arrested after she allegedly left two young children alone in her car while she performed oral sex on a boyfriend. Two Louisiana women were arrested in separate incidents on the same day for abandoning their children in cars — so they could partake in the joys of shopping and fellatio. Princess Marks, 25, of Lake Charles, left her two young children, ages 5 and 7, in an SUV so she could perform oral sex on her boyfriend about 12:40 a.m. Friday, authorities said. "Both of them were crying hysterically," Officer Kim Myers the Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office told the Daily News. "While the deputies were trying to calm the children down, Princess walked up about 15 minutes later." At that point, she admitted she was on the other side of the parking lot in her boyfriend's car performing oral sex, authorities said. Marks was arrested, charged with child desertion and released on a $5,000 bond. Deputies from Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office learned of the incident when a concerned citizen walked by the car and called the police. The SUV's windows were down. The children were placed in the care of family members. ------------- A 7 year old "crying hysterically" ? I can envision them fighting or singing like they were in the shower, but "crying hysterically" seems a bit exaggerated, unless both kids are seriously retarded. ========================= While we are in Lake Charles, LA... Later that day, about 2:30 p.m., Calcasieu Parish Sheriff's Office deputies responded to a similar call — only this time, the car was hot. Faith D. LaFleur, 26, Lake Charles left 3 children in her car in 130 degree-heat while she shopped. "A woman left three babies in a car at the Prien Lake Mall. When we did a test of the temperature, it reached 130 degrees in the car," Myers said. Faith D. LaFleur, 26, also from Lake Charles, allegedly admitted she abandoned her three children — an 11-month-old, a 5-year-old and 2-year-old — so she could go shopping. Two of the children were strapped in child seats while the other played with the keys in the ignition. An ambulance was called on scene and the children were found to be sweaty, dirty and hungry. LaFleur was arrested and charged with three counts of cruelty to a juvenile. Her bond was set at $100,000. These incidents follow several other high-profile cases of parents abandoning their children in cars — sometimes with fatal consequences. Tech Support Pits From: Kim Re: Wired or wireless keyboard and mouse Dear Webby, What is better, a wired keyboard and mouse, or a wireless combo? Kim Dear Kim Dear Kim That depends on your priorites. If you are a neat freak and the sight of the cables causes you trauma and bad dreams, then spend the extra money on a wireless combo. If faster performance and never having to pause to change batteries in the middle of an important conference call, is more important, then go for the old fashioned wired keyboard and mouse. Some manufacturers claim that their wireless combos are fast enough. That may be true for SOME users, but is not true when working at my speed. I also find it very disruptive, having to stop at the most inopportune times, to change the silly batteries. I have used wireless mice and keyboards, but nowadaus I save the $50 - $100 difference and stay with a wired keyboard and mouse. Have FUN! DearWebby

A woman, on meeting a psychologist at a party, made a pitch for some free professional advice. "What kind of toy would you suggest giving a little boy on his third birthday?" she asked. "First I'd have to know more about the child," the psychologist hedged. The woman took a deep breath. "He's very bright and quick witted and exceptionally advanced for his age," she said. "He has good coordination, expresses himself very well..." "Oh, I see," the psychologist said, "It's YOUR child!"
