    The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees
    about an urgent problem with one of the main computers.
    He dialed the employee's home phone number and was greeted with
    a child's whispered, "Hello?"
    Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster ,
    the boss asked, "Is your Daddy home?"
    "Yes," whispered the small voice.
    "May I talk with him?" the man asked.
    To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispred, "No."
    Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?"
    "Yes," came the answer. "May I talk with her?"

    Knowing that it was not likely that a youn child would be left
    home alone, the boss decided he would just leave a message with the
    person who
    should be there watching over the child.
    "Is there anyone else there in your house?" the boss asked the child.
    "Yes," whispered the child, "a policeman."
    Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the Boss
    asked, "May I speak with the police man?"
    "No, he's busy," whispered the child.
    "Busy doing what?" asked the boss.
    "Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the fireman," came the whispered answer.
    Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like
    helicopter through the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked, "What is
    that noise?"
    "A hello-copper," answered the whispering voice.
    "What is going on there?" asked the boss, now very alarmed.
    In an awed hushed voice the child answered "The search team just landed
    the hello-copper."
    Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated the boss asked,
    "What are they searching for?"
    Still whispering, the young voice replied, along with a muffled giggle:
