A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not phoned In sick one day. Having an urgent problem with one of the main computers, He dialled the employers home phone number and was greeted with a Child's' whisper. "Hello" "Is your daddy home?" he asked "Yes" whispered the small voice "May I talk with him?" "No" Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mummy there?" "Yes" "May I talk with her?" Again the small voice whispered, "No" Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss Asked, "Is anybody else there?" "Yes, whispered the boy, "a policeman" Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked, "May I speak with the policeman?" "No, he's busy", whispered the child "Busy doing what?" Talking to daddy and mommy and the fireman", came the answer. Growing more worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter, through the Earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, "What's that noise?" "A helicopter" answered the whispering voice. "What is going on there?!", demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive. Again whispering, the child answered, "The search team just landed The helicopter." Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked, "What are they searching For?!!." Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle............ "ME".

This story (while having an element of humor for sure!) makes me think "If that was my child he would be very sorry" ... If I was that boss I would go to that house ASAP and let them know! I can only imagine how worried these parents must be! (Yes I know its just a story thats meant to be funny .... right?) ~Rachel

That is so funny. That sounds just like something that one of my girls would do. I am going to call my mom and tell her this story she will get a good laugh.
