Pissing And Moaning

Continue

From the dad of my friend Brad Hill

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.

Thought you’d like to know.
