DUST VALLEY, PD---A man's wife misplaced all four of their cordless phones sometime yesterday afternoon. While the man searched for the phones, she called from work and asked if he could find her camera for an event she wanted to photograph that evening. 

“It’s in the office,” the man's wife said. 

The man reported that the camera was not in the office. 

“It’s in the laundry room,” she said. 

It reportedly wasn’t there either. 

At the time, the man was speaking to his wife on the only phone he could find, which was plugged into the wall, and so each time he checked a spot for the camera, he had to set the phone down and search, then come back. Sources said the man looked like he was playing Red Rover by himself, going back and forth. 

Later that day, the man's wife discovered this story to be fiction, and a poor attempt on her husband's part to encourage her to be more careful about where she places things like her camera and their cordless phones. Studies show that a husband trying to encourage his wife to change her habits would have more luck making it out of Chuck E. Cheese’s Pizza alive wearing a suit made of prize tickets.
