Quote of the Day

This one’s a bit old, but such a great story.

A friend, who lived with his mum and Nan when he was growing up, was talking about some teenage mischief he’d gotten up to.

Like most kids, he’d made a few prank calls in his day with a childhood friend. The usual stuff…”Is your fridge running? Is Mr Wall there?” that sort of harmless thing.

The modus opeandi was that one would look up a phone number and read it out while the other would dial and make the joke.

On this particular occasion, it was my friend’s turn, and his mate slowly read out the number as he dialled.

“9….4…..7…..3…..” etc

The phone rank and the mark answered.

“Is Mr Wall there?”

“pardon?”

“Is Mr Wall there?”

“Darling, it’s nan. Who’s Mr Wall and why would he be here? And what are you calling for by the way?”
