It was the evening before Christmas Eve. A mother was busy making pies and the like for the big dinner when the phone rang. She answered it.
"Mom, it's me," the voice on the other end said. "I am down at the bus station. Will you come and pick me up?"
The woman couldn't figure out what had happened that one of her 3 sons would arrive on the bus, so she asked him, "Who is this?"
The young man answered, "It's me, Mom, Joe."
The woman replied, "Oh, dear, I'm sorry, I'm afraid you have the wrong Mother."
