A Good Joke

So as we were moving stuff off the shelves in the old archives, I ended up using a chair to temporarily hold some stuff (not boxes, but stuff to be processed), and I told Ralph “we don’t need to sit down anyways!” He said that reminded him of a joke, which goes something like this:

Ford used to visit his plant early in the morning to make sure the graveyard shift workers were working. He told his foreman “if anyone is sitting down, fire them.” So the foreman started looking around and saw a man sitting on a box fiddling with some wires. The foreman went over to him, kicked the box out from under him, and said “You’re Fired!” The man said “I don’t care, I’m the telephone man!”

OHA is housed in the 1906 New York Telephone Company building

HA HA! My Dad, a telephone man himself, would have roared over this joke!

    Good joke, I have to remember that one.

    That looks like a lot of work you are doing. How often do you have to get at that stuff?
