Phone repair - true story
« on: March 11, 2011, 02:57:06 PM »
PHONE REPAIR

Lawrence , Kansas, December 12, 2008.

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.

Kansans are SOOOOooo practical.
"There can be no divided allegiance here.  Any man who says he is an American,
but something else also, isn't an American at all.  We have room for but one
flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is
the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a
loyalty to the American people."

I'll tell ya...
I know how that dog feels
A few years ago
I was wireing the phone into my shop...
Forgot my strippers in the house end of the line...
In all my wisdom...I figured I'd just strip the wires between my teeth
About the time I got a good bite on the wire a fooking telemarketer called...I wet my fooken pants and ended up with a hell of a headache
