And then there was the story of the guy who years ago got a job collecting the money from pay phone coin boxes. They gave him his route map and sent him on his way, but they didn't hear a word from him for three weeks, and couldn't contact him. Finally he showed up at the phone company to say he'd lost his key. "We're glad you came in," they said. "We've been holding your paycheck."

He looked surprised. "You mean I get paid too?"
