When a new employee was hired at Ford Motor Co., it was
common for the older workers to leave a message on the new
person's desk which said, "Call Hank at (phone no.)" When
they did so they were embarrassed to find out that it was
Henry Ford II's office that they were calling.

Submitter comment: This joke was played on Terry when he first started work
at the Body Engineering Division in 1974.
