A young man was experiencing some money problems and needed $200 to get his car fixed, but had run out of people to borrow from.

So, he called his parents via the operator, reversed the charge and said to his father: “I need to borrow $200.”

At the other end, his father answered: “Sorry, I can’t hear you, son, I think there may be a bad line.”

The boy shouted back: “Two hundred. I need two hundred dollars!”

“Sorry, I still can’t hear you clearly,” said his father.

Suddenly, the operator cut in: “Sorry to butt in, but I can hear him perfectly clearly.”

“Good, the father replied. “Then you send him the money!”
