The company where my brother worked had a phone system that rerouted after-hours calls. If any calls came in on a certain line while he was working late, Bill knew it would be a wrong number.

It got to the point where, as soon as the phone rang, Bill would pick up and say, "Psychic Hotline. I'm sorry, but you've dialed the wrong number."

The callers would often reply with something like, "I didn't even ask to speak to anyone yet. How did you know I dialed the wrong...Oh!" (click)

Once, early in his acting career, Johnny Weissmuller (1904-1984) played a Hindu villain in a minor play. Though the stage directions called for him to shoot another actor, during one performance the prop gun simply refused to fire.

Weissmuller then tried to 'strangle' his colleague with the curtains, which promptly fell down. What to do?

In desperation, the quick-thinking Weissmuller put his fist against his victim's face: "I kill you," he declared, "with my poison ring!"

Back in the beginning of the 90s I worked as a technician in an university, and my job was to keep the PCs and Macs at the department connected to the university network. At this time, the network cabling was a coaxial cable in each floor in the building, terminated in both ends, and the computers were connected to this cable by using a T-connector directly at the main coaxial cable. This also meant that when we cut the cable to hook up a new computer, the computers at the other end lost the connection to the network.

One day, more than three quarters of the computers lost their connection, and the telephone went red from angry employees not being able to print. After a lot of work, we found the problem. One of the professors, convinced that this computer network was a threat to his health, had cut the coaxial cable and removed the part of it that was running through his office. We were not able to convince him that there was no harm in having the cable there, so altered the cabling so it wouldn't run through his office. Afterward, the professor was angry that he was not able to use the big laser jet printers that everybody else used.

A young boy helped with the chores and his parents paid him his allowance.

Later, when his mother brought him to the toy store, he looked at the prices and said, "It's a good thing I'm working!"
