  1. A teenager girl talked with someone on the phone. She usually talks on the phone for about 2 hours. But she hung up the phone for only half an hour. Her father asked her, “Why did you hang up so shortly?”. She answered, “I dialed the wrong number.”
  2. When a woman was taking a shower on the 2nd floor, the doorbell rang. She rolled around her body with a towel and rushed down the door. In the entrance, a next‐door neighbor came. He said, “If you drop your towel, I’ll give you $800.” She thought for a while and drop her towel. The man said “Thank you” and gave her $800. After she went back to the bathroom, her husband asked her, “Did a next‐door neighbor pay back $800? I lent him $800”
