Ha, that showed her. Of course a lot of hookers probably do have hookers for people who like that sort of thing.

Oh hahah now there's a new name for handcuffs! I'd love to take a tour of the PDX Police Dept with Mrs Chatterbox! I bet she makes it fun and interesting! Cheers!

Hookers with hookers. She sounds like a fun mom, not!

Even if little What's his name ran into an actual Hooker, all he would know is this was a bad lady who cares, this lady is an ass who is just looking to be a victim.

Cute story. Cheers to Mrs. C for her quick deductive reasoning and for her good spirited volunteerism!

This is a great story, Stephen. Thank you for sharing it and well done, Mrs C, for the wonderful job you do in taking care of these tours. It's amazing how different meanings for words can cause such confusion!

Too funny! Never assume, from what a child says, what really happened!

A rose by any other name smells just as sweet? What would Shakespeare have to say regarding this gaffe of hookers and handcuffs.

I dated a girl once who had hookers, but she was scary. Funny story! ;)

I can picture the dad scratching "Tour police station with Donny's Cub Scout Troop" off his wish list.

OMG...too funny! It reminded me of a bumper sticker I just saw yesterday: "Hookers do it on the rug." Took me a while to figure out what it meant.

I took a legal education course in high school. We toured the county jail. It wasn't pretty, and we were warned in advance not to look at the men who called out to us. That's the closest I've ever come to being in jail. Love, Janie

This kind of mix up happens all the time. Try being a middle school teacher!

Mrs. C sure knows how to think on her feet!

Mrs. Chatterbox has a lot of patience, Stephen. Wow!
By: Michael Manning on April 23, 2014
Snort! Silly mother. Sweet Mrs. C.

Wow. Your wife is a saint. A patient, caring, generous, helpful, and good-humored saint.

Funny how "crossed wires" can lead to trouble. A salutary tale!

Funny story. It's a pity the woman was unable to laugh at herself for the mistake.
By: Bryan Jones on April 24, 2014
Touche! I love how calmly she handled the situation. Hopefully that mom learned something....
By: Shelly on April 24, 2014
No wonder Mrs. C is successful at this. Someone else would have been tempted to tell Donny's mom to lighten up and maybe ask some questions before taking a 6-year-old's innocent comments for something they're not. Sheesh!!!

I wouldn't mess with the Mrs., she possess 'skills' that far exceed what mere mortals can perceive. ;-)

Little Donny needs to use his WORDS correctly and Donny' s mom needs to stay quiet.
By: Cheryl P. on April 28, 2014
Since I am a volunteer coordinator, this post made me perk up right away! And then the story was so great. Little pumpkin Donny! Ha ha, I hope Mrs C tells the officer about this one :)
