Call Your Sister

A salesman telephoned a household, and a four-year-old answered.

Salesman: May I speak to your mother?

Child: She is not here.

Salesman: Well, is anyone else there?

Child: My sister

Salesman: O.K., fine. May I speak to her?

Child: I guess so.

There was a long silence on the other phone. Then:

Child: Hello?

Salesman: It’s you. I thought you were going to call your sister.

Lord Glenarvan

The telephone rang in the mansion of Lord Glenarvan. The butler answered the call.

"It's me. Please go to my wife's bedroom and tell her that I'll be home late from the club."

"Sorry, Milord, her ladyship is already asleep."

"Then wake her and tell her, while I hold the phone," the caller said.

"Yes, Sir," the butler replied.

The butler came back and said, "My Lord, her ladyship's door was locked, and when I knocked, a man's voice told me to go the hell."

The caller then said, "Damn them! Get a rifle from my collection, break down the door, and shoot them both."

"Yes, Sir," the butler responded."

A few minutes later, the butler returned to the phone and reported, "My Lord, I tried my best. I killed your wife, but as I was about to shoot the man, he jumped through the window and into the garden, and got away."

The confused caller then said, "What garden? There's no garden next to the bedroom window." "In that case, Sir, I am afraid you dialed a wrong number. Good day."

Reverse Charges Call

In the morning the day after my nuptials, the phone rang. 'Reverse charges call from Jackie', said the operator'. 'Will you accept the charges?'

A moment later, the phone rang again. 'Hi, Peter, it's Jackie', said a familiar voice, 'your mother-in-law.'
