An Indiana farm wife called the local phone company to report her
telephone failed to ring when her friends called, and that on the few occasions when it did ring, her pet dog always moaned right before the phone rang.
The telephone repairman proceeded to the scene, curious to see this
psychic dog or senile elderly lady. He climbed a nearby telephone pole, hooked in his test set, and dialed the subscriber's house. The phone didn't ring right a way, but then the dog moaned loudly and the telephone began to ring.
Climbing down from the pole, the telephone repairman found:
1. The dog was tied to the telephone system's ground wire via a steel
chain and collar.
2. The wire connection to the ground rod was loose.
3. The dog was receiving 90 volts of signaling current when the phone
number was called.
4 After a couple of such jolts, the dog would start moaning and then
urinate on himself and the ground.
5. The wet ground would complete the circuit, thus causing the phone

Eldorado® has done it again… Another 30 year employee!
Eldorado® announces the 30 year anniversary of Sales Representative Jeff Waterstreet! Jeff started with Eldorado® in 1977. He worked in the warehouse making a respectable $2.75 an hour. As a smoking accessories distributor, Eldorado® was a different company back then. Jeff negotiated a 27% raise after working at Eldorado® for a week. Three years later, he took a sales position with the company. Eldorado® has transitioned industries and grown tremendously over the last 30 years and all the while; Jeff has not batted an eye. He continues to do what he does best: keep the mood light while providing his customers with superior education and products.
“I am still not sure what the future will hold for me here with Eldorado®, but I am sure looking forward to the ride!” Jeff Waterstreet stated regarding his 30 year anniversary with Eldorado®.
Larry Garland, Owner and CEO of Eldorado® commented: “It’s hard to believe that Jeff has been with us for 30 years. He has seen us change industries, customer bases, and has grown into our top salesman after starting in the ranks of the warehouse. Jeff has an incredible knack for keeping himself amused as well as everyone around him. Over the course of the years, he has built such a great rapport with his customers that many of them will just give him a budget and have him pick inventory. What a huge compliment to him and to Eldorado®. You rock, Jeff!”
