ok, so i got made fun of twice yesterday for my outgoing voicemail message (and our dear friend RO confessed that she's been laughing at it every time she's called... thanks. ) i didn't think it was so bad...
Mine says, "you have reached the voicemail box of (insert my voice here) 'Shanna' ..." Whatever else the verizon recording says.
I HATE doing my own. The kids want their names on there and then I have to list EVERYONE in the house. So it becomes...you have reached Kevin, Shanna, Scotty, Jacob, Alec and Kyle please leave a message. ...that is stupid.
My sister's sounds like she is trying to be a phonesex operator. I think she is trying to sound pretty. I never told her how stupid it sounds.
When I was younger, I used to record music on mine. Especially the really silly ones, so you'd have to listen to a really dumb song before you got through to the voicemail messages...I wonder why no one left me a message then? LOL.
Now, one says, "Hi, you've reached my voicemail. Sorry I missed your call, please leave your name, message and number. Thanks." The other says "(in this oddly asexual female robot voice) welcome to the t-mobile messaging service."
Yes, I have two mobiles, but that's pretty standard here. A lot of people even have three or more.
Mine says "Hi, this is ionysis. I'm not answering because my phone is always on vibrate mode and I probably don't realise you are calling me. I might call you back if I recognise your number and I remember to. Otherwise, I probably won't so if it is important you had better call me again. Thanks. PS, if this message is to remind me about any kind of social event, yes, I'm coming, but text me the date, time and address because I will have lost the details."
“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars..."
