Long Distance


Recommended Posts

The Willoughbys, who lived in Chicago, had a new housekeeper.

She wasn’t very bright, but she was a splendid cook.

So the Willoughbys didn’t care whether she was smart or not.

One night at dinnertime, the telephone rang, and the new housekeeper hurried to answer.

She listened and laughed and said: “It certainly is!†and hung up.

A few seconds later the phone rang again.

The new housekeeper answered it, listened, laughed and said:

“It certainly is!†and hung up again.

“For goodness sake,†bellowed Mr. Willoughby. “What’s going on?â€

“Silliest darned thing,†answered the new housekeeper.

“Some joker keeps calling up just to say, “It’s Long Distance from New York.â€
