Murphy is in the locker room at the golf club. A cell phone on a bench rings and Murphy engages the hands free speaker-function and begins to talk. Everyone else in the room stops to listen.
Murphy: "Hello"
Woman: "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club"?
Murphy: "Yes"
Woman: "I'm at the mall now and found this beautiful leather coat. It's only $1,000. Is it okay if I buy it?”
Murphy: "A grand, sure, go ahead if you like it that much."
Woman: "I also stopped by the Mercedes dealership and saw the new 2006 models, I saw one I really liked."
Murphy: "How much?"
Woman: $90,000."
Murphy: "Okay but for $90,000, I want it with all the options."
Woman: Great! Oh, and one more thing... the house I wanted last year is back on the market - they're asking $950,000."
Murphy: 'Well, go ahead and give them an offer of $900,000. They will probably take it. I not, we can go the extra 50 thousand. It is clearly a pretty good price."
Woman: "Okay I'll see you later! I love you so much!!"
Murphy: "Bye, I love you, too."
Murphy hangs up. The other men in the locker room are staring at him in astonishment, mouths agape... He smiles and asks: "Anyone know who this phone belongs to?"

Phone rings, I answer. Some guy says "Is Nicole there?" I answer "She can't talk right now, my d@*# is in her mouth." I hang up and turn to my buddy and say "I love wrong numbers!!"
