"So AT&T, whose failing stock I've just managed to dump, in its ceaseless hustle makes a call to my number. A female voice asks for my late husband. By name. I reply, 'Joey Adams is dead. He died over 2 1/2 years ago.' Without a breath the touched, sympathetic person just says: 'OK. So can I have the spouse?' "
