MORE FROM PAUL HARVEY #15

And here’s another timeless item from Paul Harvey’s For What It’s Worth:

Our For What It’s Worth Department hears from Mary Meador of Kilgore, Texas.

Says she knows a local Kilgore executive who is back and forth to England so–he imported an English secretary.

Employed an English secretary and brought her here.

He, the executive, was on another business trip to England . . .

When his Texas office received a phone call.

And his secretary dutifully told the caller, “Oh, Mr. so-and-so–apparently you hadn’t heard–Mr. Allen has gone to the United Kingdom.”

The caller said, “I am sorry.  Terribly sorry.  Is it too late to send flowers?”

May 7, 1984
