A man at work calls home and his 8 years old daughter picks the phone:
“Hi honey,this is daddy.Is mommy near the phone?”
“No daddy she is upstairs in the bedroom with Uncle Paul.” The little girl quipped.
“After a brief pause daddy says,“But honey you haven’t got an uncle Paul!”
“Oh yes I do,and he is upstairs in the room with mommy right now.”
Brief pause,“Uh okay then,this is what I want you to do:put the phone down on the table,run upstairs,knock on the bedroom door,and shout to mommy that daddy’s car has just arrived at the gate.”
“Ok daddy just a minute….”
A while later the little girl comes back to the phone, “Done it daddy.
””What happened honey?”
“Well, mom got scared and jumped naked from the bed, ran screaming into the room, stumbled and threw her head up the stairs, now she’s not moving over to all.”
“What about Uncle Paul?” asked Dad. He jumped out the window into the swimming pool,but I guess he didn’t know you emptied the water last week. He hit the bottom and I think he’s dead.”
After a really long pause this time… Daddy says,“Swimming pool,but we don’t have a swimming pool! Is this 486-5731?”
“No,this is 486-5713” “Sorry wrong number….!!!!”
