A receptionist at an accountants office got a call. She was asked by the caller to put him through to Mr. Dewey.
“I’m sorry, sir,” the receptionist said, “Mr. Dewey passed away yesterday.”
“Oh. I’m sorry about that. Goodbye.”
But everyday for the next two weeks the same man called back and the same exchange occurred. Finally, the receptionist said, “Sir, I have told you repeatedly that Mr. Dewey died, why do you keep calling and asking for him?”
“Oh. I just like hearing it.”
