    There are several men sitting around in the locker
    room of a golf club After a
    round, showering and getting changed for the 19th
    hole.

    Suddenly a mobile phone on one of the benches rings.
    One of the men picks it
    up, and the following conversation ensues:

    (H - Husband, W - Wife)

    H - "Hello?"

    W - "Honey, it's me. Are you at the club?"

    H - "Yes."

    W -"Great! I am at the mall two blocks from where you
    are. I just saw a
    beautiful leather coat. It's absolutely gorgeous!! Can
    I buy it?"

    H -"What's the price?"

    W - "Only $1,000."

    H - "Well, OK, go ahead and get it, if you like it
    that much...

    " W - "Ahhh, and I also stopped by the Mercedes
    dealership and saw the 2003
    models. I
    saw one I really liked. Its a SLK model. I spoke with
    the salesman, and he gave
    me a really good price . and since we need to exchange
    the BMW that we
    bought last year..

    H - "What price did he quote you?"

    W - "Only $65,000..."

    H - "OK, but for that price I want it with all the
    options."

    W - "Great! But before we hang up, something else...

    H -"What?"

    W - "It might look like a lot, but I was reconciling
    your bank account and
    I stopped by the real estate agent this morning and
    saw the house we had
    looked at last year. It's for sale!! Remember? The one
    with a pool English
    garden, acre of park area, beach front property."

    H - "How much are they asking?"

    W - "Only $450,000 -- a magnificent price...and I see
    that we have that
    much in the bank to cover..."

    H - "Well, then go ahead and buy it, but just bid up
    to $420,000. OK?"

    W - "OK,sweetie...Thanks! I'll see you later!! I love
    you!!!"

    H - "Bye...I love you too..."

    The man hangs up & closes the phone's flap. The other
    men are looking at
    him in astonishment and derision. The husband raises
    his hand while holding the
    phone and asks "Does anyone know who this Cellphone
    belongs to???"

    Moral : keep your mobile safe
