My Friend Benny kept dropping his phone and cracking his screen. He went through a seemingly endless series of visits to cellphone screen replacement shops, and sometimes ending up having to buy a whole new phone.
I finally asked him the obvious. "Why don't you order a case?"
A few days later he got a large box delivered with 24 iPhones inside.
The computers in the cash counting room in one of Las Vegas’ biggest casinos all crashed, and the workers were forced to count and tally the money by writing down the totals on a ledger.
There was cash in piles covering the entire counting table.
One of the workers called the I.T. Department for a solution to the computer snafu. Suddenly, he hung up the phone, walked over to the table, and swept the piles of money into a burlap sack.
“What are you doing?” yelled one of his co-workers.
“The I.T. guys told me to clear the cash.”
I was sending out a business email to several people and shortly thereafter my daughter, Margaret, sent back a message, “I think this was meant for a different Margaret.”
So I tried again, but didn’t realize my auto-fill kept adding daughter Margaret to the email, not the Margaret I was trying to email.
Another email from the daughter came: “You did it again. Wrong Margaret.”
I replied, “This is frustrating. There’s just one way to solve this. Daughter, you need to change your name.”
