Several teachers are in the teachers room of South Skunky Schools.
A cell phone on a table rings and a male teacher engages the hands
free speaker-function and begins to talk.
Everyone else in the room stops to listen.
WOMAN: "Honey, it's me. Are you at work?"
WOMAN: "I am at the mall now and found this beautiful leather coat.
It's only $1,000. Is it OK if I buy it?"
MAN: "Sure, go ahead if you like it that much."
WOMAN: "I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership
and saw the new 2007 models. I saw one I really liked"
MAN: "How much?"
MAN: "OK, but for that price I want it with all the options."
WOMAN: "Great! Oh, and one more thing ....
The house I wanted last year is back on the market.
They're only asking $950,000"
MAN: "Well, go ahead and make them an offer of $900,000.
They will probably take it. If not, we can go the extra 50 thousand."
WOMAN: "OK. I'll see you later! I love you so much!!"
MAN: "Bye! I love you, too."
The man hangs up. The other teachers in the room
are staring at him in astonishment, mouths agape.....
He smiles and asks: "Anyone want to give
Dr. LaBeaver his phone back?"
