Leave A Message

     A generic phone greeting is the pre-recorded default voice that isn’t even yours. An annoying greeting is when someone plays music for a few minutes before giving you the opportunity to leave a message. Word to the wise just because it’s your favorite song doesn’t mean other people feel like listening to it. Not only that but it’s actually kind of unprofessional if your employer calls. So tell me what kind of message do people hear before going to your voice mail?

The current voice greeting on my cell phone hasn’t changed for ages. If you called me, you’d hear: “This is Kerry if you’d like me to return your call please leave a message. Thank you.” [beep]

      When me & my sister Monica was in high school I wrote a jingle for us to sing on the answering machine. We sounded so cute. I even remember one time when my Aunt Carolyn called for no apparent reason. After answering she told me to hang up and don’t pick up when she calls back because she wanted to hear us sing. Friends and relatives enjoyed it for quite some time… until one mysterious day, when someone accidentally deleted it.

♫ Leave a message and we’ll get back to you…

♫ Oh, yeah!

♫ We’ll get back to you…

♫ Oh, yeah!

♫ Leave your name baby…

♫ and your message sugar…

♫ and we’ll get back to you…

♫ Oh yeah eeeeeee yeah!

      I mistakenly recorded myself talking on the phone prior to doing a video chat with my friend. Guess who called me? The same friend who I was going to do the video chat with. (haha) It was so funny when I played it back only hearing one side of the conversation. I said “Mmmhmmm” quite a bit. Though its not necessarily a word (more of a sound) I do this to acknowledge the person on the other end, so they know that I’m listening.
