A Long Wait
Heard on my cable company’s answering machine: "We realize you are still holding. Please do not hang up, as this will further delay your call." xml
I was looking at the pies offered by a nearby café. They had cherry, apple, berry, peach, and Herman’s.
"What type of pie is Herman’s?" I asked the waiter.
"Apple," he said.
"Then why is it called Herman’s pie?"
"Because Herman called in to reserve it."
