Phone Problems
Permalink  
 


A Kansas farm wife called the local phone company to report her telephone
failed to ring when her friends called - and that on the few occasions, when
it did ring, her dog always moaned right before the phone rang.

The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this psychic
dog... or senile lady.

 He climbed the telephone pole at the front of her house, hooked in his test
set, and dialed the subscriber's house.
            
 The phone didn't ring right away, but then the dog chained up in the front
yard yelped and moaned... and the telephone began to ring.

            Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:

            1. The dog was tied to the telephone system's ground wire with a steel
chain and collar.

            2. The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.

            3. The dog was receiving 90 volts of signaling current when the number was called.

            4. After a couple of jolts, the dog would start moaning and then urinate.

            5. The wet ground would complete the circuit, thus causing the phone to ring.

Which demonstrates that SOME problems CAN be fixed by pissing and moaning.

Just thought you'd like to know.

"LOL" I have seen some strange things in KS and its phone lines.

my grandad had his phone line just thrown up in the trees, no poles or anything. I had a 1/2 mile of phone line that was just laying on the ground for about 2 years until they finally put it up on poles
