Feel free to browse the collection of tall tales, yarns and downright lies. They are all family safe - the test I apply is "would I tell this to someone's grandmother?" If no, I don't use it. (That doesn't mean i don't appreciate a dirty joke, but I don't think they're appropriate for broadcast on the radio - you never know who is listening or how old they are or what their attitudes to dirty jokes amounts to. )
Mom was getting swamped with calls from strangers. The reason? A medical billing service had launched a 1-800 number that was identical to hers.
When she called to complain, she was told to get a new number. "But I've had mine for twenty years," she pleaded. "Couldn't you change yours?"
The company refused. So Mom said, "Fine. From now on, I'm going to tell everyone who calls that the bill is paid in full, not to worry about the matter."
The company got a new number the next day.
