Default Poor doggie

An elderly lady phoned her telephone company to report that her
telephone failed to ring when her friends called - and that on
the few occasions when it did ring, her pet dog always moaned
right before the phone rang. The telephone repairman proceeded
to the scene, curious to see this psychic dog or senile elderly
lady.

He climbed a nearby telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and
dialed the subscriber'* house. The phone didn't ring right away,
but then the dog moaned loudly and the telephone began to ring.

Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:

1. The dog was tied to the telephone system'* ground wire via 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
phone number was called.

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

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

Its TRUE!! I had a bad purchasing experience at Daddys Junky Music, and when I decided to call corporate and bitch to them about their lousy service and customer care, they refunded me my money and did everything possible to keep me as a customer. I no longer shop there because they suck!!
