She turned and looked at me as if she was demanding an explanation. I said, "I did that by accident..." She replied, "I know that....'cause you didn't yell 'You @#$%&!' after beeping!" ____________________________________________________ A woman was getting swamped with calls from strangers. The reason? A billing service had launched an 800 number that was identical to hers. When she called to complain, she was told to get a new number. "I've had mine for twenty years," she pleaded. "Couldn't you change yours?" The company refused, so she said, "Fine. From now on, I'm going to tell everyone who calls that their bill is paid in full." The company got a new number the next day. _____________________________________________________ Malwarebytes for Home | Anti-Malware Premium | Free Trial Download ______________________________________________________ ____________________________________

_____________________________________________________ Thanks to Dave for this story: As the manager of our hospital's softball team, I was responsible for returning equipment to the proper owners at the end of the season. When I walked into the surgery department carrying a bat that belonged to one of the surgeons, I passed several patients and their families in a waiting area. I heard one man say to his wife, "Look, honey, here comes your anesthesiologist." _____________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by Juan Mendoza, Madera, California Suspect's attempted getaway on ATV ended up in the dirt A California police department shared an officer's dash cam footage of a suspect on an ATV attempting a getaway that failed in spectacular fashion. The Madera Police Department posted a video to Facebook showing dashboard camera footage from Officer Abraham's patrol vehicle during an attempted traffic stop. The officer had attempted to stop a man riding an ATV on the road without proper safety gear and running through a stop light, but the man refused to yield to Abraham's lights and siren. The video shows the chase weave through neighborhood streets before the suspect, Juan Mendoza, attempts to go off-road -- causing his vehicle to flip. "As you can see, Mendoza did not reach the outcome he was looking for and luckily only his pride was hurt," police wrote. "Traffic laws apply to all motor vehicles on roadways. We understand that off-road vehicles can be fun to operate, but please do this in the appropriate areas and use safety gear." _________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Angie Re: FTP Dear Webby, Dear Webby, I have always used browser FTP to up and download files, but with my new web host I can't do that any more.

Automatically move ALL your settings and programs. No need to re-install them. The only mover recommended by Intel and Microsoft. The pastor shocked the congregation when he announced that he was resigning from the church and moving to a drier climate. After the service, a very distraught lady came to the pastor with tears in her eyes, "Oh, Pastor Bob, we are going to miss you so much. We don't want you to leave!" The kindhearted pastor patted her hand and said "Now, now, Carolyn, don't carry on. The pastor who takes my place might be even better than me". "Yeah", she said, with a tone of disappointment in her voice, "That's what they said the last time too...."

A lady picked up several items at a discount store. When she finally got up to the checker, she learned that one of her items had no price tag. Imagine her embarrassment when the checker got on the intercom and boomed out for all the store to hear, "PRICE CHECK ON LANE THIRTEEN, TAMPAX, SUPER SIZE." That was bad enough, but somebody at the rear of the store apparently misunderstood the word "Tampax" for "THUMBTACKS." In a business-like tone, a voice boomed back over the intercom. "DO YOU WANT THE KIND YOU PUSH IN WITH YOUR THUMB OR THE KIND YOU POUND IN WITH A HAMMER?" ____________________________________________________ Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com College Kids and Credit Cards Credit card companies fall over themselves to offer credit to new college students. If you have a child heading off to college, be sure to warn them about this because they can quickly amass high interest credit card debt that could haunt them, and you, for years to come. ____________________________________________________ A man was stranded on the proverbial deserted Pacific island for years. Finally one day a boat comes sailing into view, and the man frantically waves and draws the skipper's attention. The boat comes near the island, and the sailor gets out and greets the stranded man. After awhile the sailor asks, "What are those three huts you have here?" "Well, that's my house there." "What's that next hut?" asks the sailor. "I built that hut to be my church." "What about the other hut?" "Oh, that's where I used to go to church."

At a jury trial with the jury consisting of 4 men and 8 women: Defendant: "Your Honor, I wish to change my plea." Judge: "Is someone using undue influence to prompt you to change your mind?" Defendant: "No sir, when I pled 'Not Guilty' I didn't know there would be women on the jury. Since I can't ever get anything past my wife, I'll never be able to convince 8 women jurors." ___________________________________________________
