I got a new cell phone recently.
As the world stood in line to pick up the latest iPhone 8, I graduated to the 6S. I pride myself on that actually.
As with all new phones in the 21st century, the voicemail must be set up anew. I used the default message for the first few days, but finally settled down to record a more personal greeting. I’d done this before; no need to write down what I was going to say.
Here’s what came out:
You’ve reached Janet at her cell phone. Ummmm, if you, errrrrr. (chuckle, chuckle) Ah, you know what to do, just do it.
I hung up the phone thinking I’d collect myself and record a better one. Perhaps I’d even write it down this time. Hours went by; then days. Eventually, the unconventionality of my message grew on me.
What do you think? Would you change it if this were yours? What’s your voicemail message story?
Still looking for that perfect under-ten-dollar gift that you don’t have to mail? Here’s the link to set you on your way.
