“Doesn’t that ever get con­fus­ing?” my friend asked.

“Oh no,” the girl said. “I just call her Mom.” OVERHEARD ON THE JOB Boss to line worker: I need you to do such and such.

Line worker: You didn’t say the p word.

Boss: Pay­check.

OUR UTIL­ITY CUS­TOMERS of­ten don’t un­der­stand the in­tri­ca­cies of their bills. Re­cently, a man called ask­ing how much he owed.

“No, I don't need a home equity loan, but I AM curious to know how you
