Story during lunch

During lunch today a colleague told a story about "Mike," a guy who retired. She used to work with Mike @ the law liberry, and one day asked him to call about 30 publishers and ask for magazines they didn't receive. So, Mike spent all day calling the publishing companies, or so he thought.

The next day the mailman (ext. 1800) comes into the liberry and says would someone please tell Mike that he needs to press 9 before dialing? I got 30 messages.

I can't believe he didn't realize that he kept calling the same voicemail!

Mike always had trouble with phones.

No matter how many times I told him he didn't have to press the "speaker" button before answering the phone at the ref desk, he would KEEP DOING IT and the people transfering the calls hated it because it made this really loud clattering noise when he picked up the receiver.
