You might want to do the same, so here is a joke for you to learn. It’s not inappropriate and is quite safe to use in an informal, but professional, situation. It was voted the world’s funniest joke in an international survey, so it should go down well. Good luck!

Telephone lingo on the street

I remember seeing a documentary on the 100th anniversary of the telephone. The programme described how this one invention changed not only communication, but our whole society. Communities were safer as police and firemen became rapid and more responsive to emergencies. Even the story line in films and books became more complicated with the "mysterious phone call" at midnight. For instance, thousands of women often found their first job outside the home as switchboard operators.
