I’m reminded of a story of a grocery store owner who overheard a young boy using the pay phone at the entrance of his store. You know how telephone conversations are; you usually hear only one side of the conversation.

The young boy was talking and the store manager was listening, "Hello, sir, I was calling you to see if you could use a lawn boy to do your yard work!...Oh, I see, you already have one!...

Well, is he doing your work to your satisfaction?...He is! Thank you sir, I was just checking," then the young boy hung up the phone.

The grocery store owner looked at the boy and said, "Sorry you didn’t get the job!"

"Oh, no sir," said the boy. "I’ve already got that job. I was just calling to check up on myself!"
