The Dial-a-joke line

January 3, 2018

Question from E-mail

I also remember reading that a woman called your dial-a-joke line, and you answered saying “I bet I can hang up faster than you.” and then you hung up on her – was this your future wife? Again this was a long time ago so I’m not sure if that’s true.


True. My first wife. I was thankful back then just to ever have gotten married in my life. There was some doubt that it would happen! I was young and naive and pure and could never possibly not have been there for her alone. But after Apple’s success, I found out that if one party wants a divorce then there’s a divorce. She certainly has a lot more money than I do today.
