thats 3 and a half minutes of my life im never getting back *sigh* could stand to watch the whole thing. uh.

anyway, an answering machine message really should say:
"OH! you're not home! well, uh, hi its Jon, my number is 123456, get back to me when you can, bye!" BEEP.

"Heck, when I'm on the phone, everyone says that I sound like my mother!"

People who call often mistake me for my father, so you`re not the only one with that problem.

I...don't get it. I understand the point, yes, but I don`t understand why people find it scary to record the answering machine message? And I`m extremely self-critical, very aware of my flaws, and I hate my voice. Heck, when I`m on the phone, everyone says that I sound like my mother! Is there a worse insult than that?

Anyway, what I`m saying is...when people are calling you and have to leave a message, they don`t want to hear some long recording of you showing them how original you are. They want to leave a message. So long as your recording makes it clear that they do indeed have the right number, nothing else matters!

Although, once or twice, I`ve come across some totally hilarious and original answering machine messages...some people are just really good at that sort of thing. But it`s rare and I think it`s good that it`s rare.
