[Passed on to me as true. I’d believe it.]
Our mother was away all weekend at a business conference. During a break,
she decided to call home to check on us. She’d forgotten to charge her cell
phone, so used the motel room phone and called collect.
Since my dad and I were outside shooting hoops, my six-year-old brother
picked up the phone and heard a stranger’s voice say, “We have a ‘Betty’ on
the line. Will you accept the charges?”
Frantic, he dropped the receiver and came charging outside screaming, “Dad!
They’ve got Mom! And they want money!”
