111?

One of our technicians came into the office today with a grin. Being the type to always have a joke at the ready we all stopped what we were doing and awaited the story and punchline.

He began..

“I got a report from the service centre today asking me to return a call to a lady from a particular village to talk to her about a drainage problem outside her property. There was a note attached to the report which read…. when you call Mrs Caller please allow the phone to ring for a long time as she is 111 and will take time to get to the phone”.

He continued..

“So I dialled the number and waited while it rang several times and then several more and eventually the lady answered in a very frail voice and apologised for taking so long to get to the phone. I said it was ok and that I thought she did remarkably well considering she was 111 years old. She said why do you say that? And I replied because that’s what it says on my sheet! She replied, I didn’t say I was 111 I told them that I was ill”

    that reminds me of the 710 blonde joke. She said she was missing her 710 cap & nobody could figure out what she was taking about. Turned out she meant the OIL cap.
