“My Children Were Kidnapped” – There was an employee who had three young children in elementary school. Her mother always picked them up after school, took them home and babysits until someone came home from work.  One day the employee started screaming at her desk. It was really loud screaming. The kind that you don’t hear at work. Bloodcurdling!!  Everyone stopped working and came running. 

The employee’s mother was at the school. She called the employee to say that the children were not there. No one saw who picked them up. The grandmother thought someone had kidnapped them and her daughter reacted.

Her supervisor called the police who came immediately. She was absolutely hysterical. She had no idea why someone would do that. She had no money for ransom. The police couldn’t get any information out of her. Then she received the call from her husband.  It seems that she had asked him to pick up the kids that day…..need I say more?
