leaving voicemail, take #37…

Sometimes I shrivel a bit when I have to leave a voicemail.

Sometimes I shrivel a bit when I have to leave a voicemail.

Being able to re-record a voicemail sometimes get ridiculous for me. My boys were having fun, being noisy while I was leaving a business-related voicemail. Actually, they were kind of howling, like some kind of monkey, but not until I actually started speaking. It went something like this:

Take 1: “Hey, this is Todd, seeing how those mixes translate (boys yelling) ummmmm”……(can’t think…oh, leaving message….pants, why am I thinking about pants?…..)

(press #, re-record)

Take 2: “Hey, this is Todd…I’m making words to you now because of mixing and..”

(press #, re-record)

Take 14: “WHO ARE YOU AND WHY ARE YOU CALLING ME”

(press #, re-record)

Take 19: “I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I EARN A LIVING. CALL ME BACK.”

(press #, re-record)

Take 24: “VEGAS” see, I just came back from Vegas.

(press #, re-record)

Take 37: (finally leaving message that makes sense and gives the appearance that I am a responsible adult. possibly)

Good times.

  1. I do the same thing when leaving messages. It makes me wonder if people get confused when I call them and the voicemail doesn’t come through for a good half hour after the missed call. I usually end up talking to their mailbox as if they were actually on the phone. Then I ramble. I answer my own questions. I say “umm” a lot. It’s pretty horrible. I try not to leave messages whenever it can possibly be avoided. This is probably why I will never become a lawyer, or King of the World.
