About Complaining

As a rule I would not post this sort of thing but for this I made an exception. :)

About Complaining
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 Fish-Game Warden walks up to an old Indian man with a bucket full of fish an confronts him.

Warden: What are you doing with these fish ?

Old man: These fish ?

Warden: Yeah, those fish.

Old man: These are pet fish.

Warden: No, there not.

Old man: There gettin bigger and I don't have a bigger bucket.

Warden: And, so.

Old man: So, I to train them to swim out for awhile to get their exercise. After that they swim back.

Warden: Ok, prove it.

Old man: He gently lowers the fish into the water, sure enough just as he said they swim out.

:::Waiting:::

Warden: Impatiently say's,....well?

Old man: Well, what?

Warden: Where's the fish ?

Old man: What fish ?:)


Moral:

If you screw around and loose your time no amount of "pissing and moaning" can get it back.:rolleyes:

I though the punch line for the fish joke was going to be:

"Oh, they wont come back while you are here, they are frightened of strangers".
