So a guy calls a depression hotline...

...only to find the call center had been outsourced -- along with so many other U.S. jobs!

So he calls the depression hotline, and finds it answered in a tribal Pakistani accent:

Hello, is this the depression hotline?

Helooo! Yas, it tis.

Hi. This is Sam and I'm trying to find someone to talk to...

Ah, yas! And vhat seemms to bee th' preblam?

Um, I don't know how to put this, but I'm feeling suicidal...

[Long pause... ...]

Ah! Suiweecidal! Good, verra good! Cann yew drihve a truck??

drums and cymbals, please, lol!

Sorry about the borderline crass humor, but a friend sent that and I laughed too hard not to pass it along... and it really does serve a very serious point: see what the terrorists stoop to now.

So if you think you've had a bad day, think of this poor guy and smile awhile -- and consider our world that needs your prayers [and laughter!].

God bless all, especially our friends in other countries. :-) And, please forgive me, those who've ever struggled with depression... but sometimes a smile helps! God bless you!

Hi Jamie,

You are welcome for the link -- you've got the beginning of a great site! And a nice touch with the camera, too.

And a great family, no question!
