“Hello, American Keyboard Company.”

“I’d like to report an issue with my new keyboard.”

“Yes sir. What is the problem?”

“My keyboard exploded.”


“Yes. Kablooey!”

“It made that sound?”


“It made that sound when it exploded?”

“Kablooey? No, that was my description.”

“So, no Kablooey?”


“Oh,” the operator said, disappointed.

“Does it matter?”

“Well we’ve had “Kaboom”, “Kapow” and “Boomchow”. I was hoping for something new.”

“So this is a known issue?”

“Did’ya read the operation manual?”

“Some of it.”

“See Page 69.”

Rattling pages preceded a string of obscenities.

“Keyboard may explode in first six hours of use.”

  1. I am guilty of not reading those little instruction manuals too.

  2. Very funny tale. And I thought it only happened to drummers…

  3. Loved the dialogue.. and that page 68 should be read carefully..

  4. Jan Brown says:

    So funny–such a realistic flavor to the dialogue. I think this is my favorite of the week 🙂

So you took time to read what I wrote and I appreciate it, but comments are even better!
