The cantankerous old managing partner finally passed away. Strangely the firm’s receptionist kept receiving calls asking to speak with him.
“I’m sorry, he’s dead,” was her standard answer.
Eventually, the receptionist began to realize it was always the same voice, so she asked who it was and why they kept calling.
“I used to be one of his junior associates,” replied the caller, “and I just like to hear you say it.”
