The boss of a big company needed to call one of his employees due to an urgent problem. He dialed to the employee's home and was greeted by a child whispering,
Feeling put out at the inconvenience of having to talk to a kid the boss asked,
"Is your Daddy home?"
"Yes", whispered the small voice.
"May I talk to him?" the man asked.
To the surprise of the boss, the small voice whispered,
Wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked,
"Is your Mommy there?"
came the answer.
"May I talk to her?"
Again the small voice whispered,

The boss decided he would just leave a message to the person who should be there watching the child.
"Is there any one there besides you?" the boss asked the child.
"Yes" whispered the child, "a policeman."
Wondering what a cop would be doing at his employee's home, the boss asked,
"May I speak with the policeman?"
"No, he's busy," whispered the child.
"Busy doing what?" asked the boss.
"Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman", came the whispered answer.
Growing very concerned especially as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through the earpiece on the phone the boss asked,
"What is that noise?""A hello-copper" answered the whispering voice.
"Honey, what is going on at your house?" asked the boss, now alarmed.
In an awed, whispering voice the child answered,
"Some men in a hello-copper just landed and are looking around."
Alarmed, concerned, and more than just a little frustrated the boss asked,
"What are they looking for?"
Still whispering, the young voice replied along with a muffled giggle: "Me"
