    The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees about an 
urgent problem with one of the main computers. He dialed the employees 
home phone number and was greeted with a child's whispered, "Hello?"

    Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a youngster 
the boss asked, "Is your Daddy home?"


"Yes," whispered the small voice.

    "May I talk with him?" the man asked.

    To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered, "No."

    Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked, "Is your Mommy there?"


"Yes," came the answer.

    "May I talk with her?"

the small voice whispered, "No."

    Knowing that it was not likely that a young child would be left home 
alone, the boss decided he would just leave a message with the person 
who should be there watching over the child.

    "Is there anyone there 
besides you?" the boss asked the child.


"Yes," whispered the child, "A policeman."

    Wondering what a cop would be
 doing at his employee's home, the boss asked "May I speak with the


"No, he's busy," whispered the child."

    "Busy doing
 what?" asked the boss.

    "Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman," 
came the whispered answer.


Growing concerned and even worried as he heard what sounded like a 
helicopter through the ear piece on the phone the boss asked, "What is
 that noise?"

    "A hello-copper," answered the whispering voice.

    "What is going on 
there?" asked the boss, now alarmed.

    In an awed whispering voice the child answered, "The search team just
 landed the hello-copper"

    Alarmed, concerned and more than just a little frustrated the boss 
asked, "Why are they there?"

    Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle:

    "They're looking for me!"
