Telephone CO humour

PHONE REPAIR

A
Kansas farm wife called the local phone company to report her telephone failed to ring when her friends called - and that on the few occasions, when it did ring, her dog always moaned right before the phone rang.

The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this psychic dog or senile lady. He climbed a telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and dialed the subscriber's house.

The phone didn't ring right away, but then the dog moaned and the telephone began to ring.

Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:

1 . The dog was tied to the telephone system's ground wire with a steel chain and collar.

2. The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.

3. The dog was receiving 90 volts of signaling current when the number was called.

4. After a couple of jolts, the dog would start moaning and then urinate.

5. The wet ground would complete the circuit , thus causing the phone to ring.

Which demonstrates that some problems CAN be fixed by pissing and moaning.

A day of winters delights

Crow tracks wondering across my yard, leaving impressions in the snow, looking for a tidbit to eat I ponder?

Winter trees rustling, to catch a whisper of wend drifting through them, in vane I think but still they try.

Blue skies are being overtaken by billowing gray clouds, drifting away from someone else’s withering view.

As the sun sets behind the earth, it turns the land a muted wash of colors, which artist must envy.

Setting by my window watching as the day dances by, I realize blest I been, with a day of glories sites.

I await the twinkling of the night’s skies, so I may rest a weary head, and dream the wonders of this day.

I just sent this to me two senators

 STOP the stimulus bill as it is its full of pork and will not help the USA with taxes or jobs. VOTE NO and get some backbone. You need to stop listening to party members and start listening to the people that voted you in to office. Wake up and be a American and stop being a politician.

Costumer service

Was at a costumer’s home today that had phone jacks stop working. I found in the basement a junction with the phone lines and TV cable in it. The phone lines all where plugged in to a small jack field with RJ45s all where loose and just hanging there. I plugged them back in but the little plug lock did not work on any of them. Who ever wired the house used the wrong plugs and they did not mach the plugs. I did get them to plug back in and stay but sooner or later there work there way out. With no slack in the cables there was no way to repair the ends with out splicing on new cable and ends. But the home owner did not want to pay us to do that. So I suggested he call the contractor to see if he would warranty the work on a 3 year old house? He said he would.
