The owner of a musical instrument store summoned one of his staff who was overheard arguing with a customer. He asked her what they were arguing about. "She wanted a guitar, and I told her we didn't have one."
The boss said, "So she wanted a guitar, the customer is always right. Why did you give her a hard time?"
"Well, for starters, she was left-handed, so she wasn't right."
"You in the back of the room, what was the date of the signing of the Magna Carter?"
"You don't? Well let's try this. Who was Bonny Prience Charley?"
"Well, tell me what the Tennis Court Oath was?"
"I assigned this stuff last Friday. What were you doing this last weekend?"
"I was out drinking beer and fishing with friends."
"You were? What audacity to stand there and tell me a thing like that? How do you ever expect to pass this course?"
"I don't. I just came in to fix the radiator."
I still have a lot of trouble with wrong numbers. Yesterday I dialed the Red Cross and got the Internal Revenue Service in error.
So the IRS operator asked me what number I had dialed. I said, "The Red Cross, you know, where they take the blood."
She said, "Well, you aren't too far off, are you?"
