Why some parents turn to drink

>>>>A boss wondered why one of his most valued employees had not come
>>>>to work or phoned in sick.
>>>>Having an urgent problem with one of the maincomputers, he dialled the
>>>>employee's home phone number and
>>>>was greeted with a child's whisper. "Hello."
>>>>"Is your daddy home?" he asked.
>>>>"Yes," whispered the small voice.
>>>>"May I talk with him?"The child whispered,
>>>>Surprised and wanting to talk with an adult, the boss asked,
>>>>"Is your Mommy there?"
>>>>"May I talk with her?"
>>>>Again the small voice whispered, "No."
>>>>Hoping there was somebody with whom he could leave a message, the boss
>>>>"Is anybody else there?"
>>>>"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?"
>>>>"Talking to Daddy and Mommy and the Fireman," came the whispered answer.
>>>>Growing more worried as he heard what sounded like a helicopter through
>>>>the earpiece on the phone, the boss asked,
>>>>"What is that noise?"
>>>>"A helicopter" answered the whispering voice.
>>>>"What is going on there?" demanded the boss, now truly apprehensive.
>>>>Again, whispering, the child answered, "The search team just landed
>>>>the helicopter."
>>>>Alarmed, concerned and a little frustrated the boss asked,
>>>> "What are they searching for?"
>>>>Still whispering, the young voice replied with a muffled giggle:

Thanks again, Chip
