Please leave a message

by statia on January 14, 2005

Are people that lazy or too good that they can’t record their own voice mail message? Is that too menial of a task for some people?

Seriously, come on. It takes all of 2 minutes and pushing of maybe like 5 buttons.


ETA: I should probably clarify a little. I was actually talking about more of a business situation. Like when a person has their assistant record their voice mail message for them.

Best voice mail recording I’ve ever heard:

“Hey. I’m not here. You know what to do.” *beep*

my voicemail says ‘hi, leave a message, thanks, bye.’ and it only took me maybe a minute. at least it’s my voice and not that automated robo-voice.

I have done away with my answering machine. If someone wants to talk to me they call my home, my cell or send a text message. I figure thats convenient enough, if not they can call back.

I really hate it when people leave the default on their cell phone and a computer voice says, “you have reached (203) 555-XXXX, please leave a message!” UGH. Annoying.

I think it’s a power trip for some to have an assistant leave the outgoing message on work voice mail.

I have some friends that NEVER change their home machine. We make fun of it every time we call.

Yea….that’s just weird. I think Sarah is right….its gotta be a power trip thing.

Now, for my home machine…..I didn’t change the message…Kevin did. It goes a little some’n like this..”Hi. You’ve reached Kevin’s neighbors and they’re not home right now so leave ‘em a message.” Goof. Ball.

It’s the VP’s and the managers that don’t have personalized voice messages where I work. They can’t get their professional assistants to do it for them!
