WHY PARENTS DRINK

Why
Parents Drink

The boss wondered why one of his most valued employees
wasabsent
but had not phoned in sick. So he dialed the employee’s
home phone
number and was greeted with a child’s whisper.
“Hello?” 
“Is your daddy home?”
“Yes, he’s out in the garden,” whispered the small
voice.
“May I talk with him?”
The child whispered, “No,” so the boss asked, “Well,
is your Mommy
there?”
“Yes, she’s out in the garden too”
The boss asked, “May I talk with her?”
Again the small voice whispered, “No.”
Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave
a message,
the boss asked, “s anybody else there?”
“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
policeman?”
  “No, he’s busy,”  whispered the
child. 
“Busy doing what?” 
“Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the police dog
men.”
Growing more worried as he heard a loud noise in the
background,the
boss asked, “What is that noise?” 
“It’s a helicopter” answered the whispering
voice. 
“What is going on there?” demanded the boss, now
truly apprehensive.
“The search team just landed a
helicopter” 
“A search team?” said the boss. “What are they
searching for?” 
Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled
giggle…”ME.”
