Collect Call

My mother was away all weekend at a business conference.

During a break, she decided to call home collect. 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!”
