SEWING MACHINE FOR SALE!

The following is an ad that appeared four days in a row in a real-life
newspaper -- the last three hopelessly trying to correct the first day's
mistake.


MONDAY: For sale: R.D. Jones has one sewing machine
for sale. Phone
948-0707 after 7 PM and ask for Mrs. Kelly who lives
with him cheap.

TUESDAY Notice: We regret having erred in R.D.
Jones' ad yesterday. It
should have read "One sewing machine for sale cheap.
Phone 948-0707 and
ask for Mrs. Kelly, who lives with him after 7 PM."

WEDNESDAY Notice: R.D. Jones has informed us that he
has received
several annoying telephone calls because of the error we made in the
classified ad yesterday. The ad stands correct as
follows: "For sale:
R.D. Jones has one sewing machine for sale. Cheap.
Phone 948-0707 after
7 PM and ask for Mrs. Kelly who loves with him."

THURSDAY Notice: I, R.D. Jones, have no sewing
machine for sale. I
smashed it. Don't call 948-0707 as I have had the
phone disconnected. I
have not been carrying on with Mrs. Kelly. Until
yesterday she was my
housekeeper but she quit!

I fixed the FM thing. The problem was with the third party initialization...nothing on our parts. I just switched my third party source and everything is good. ^_^

Hilarious post. Poor R.D. Jones. I'll bet Mrs. Kelly will be sorely missed.
