Voice Mail

I noticed today that I had a voice mail on my phone.

I never check my messages at work. Mostly, this is due to the fact that my phone rings about once every 2 months. If people at work want to get a hold of me, they usually email or IM me. Because of this, messages can sit in my voice mail box for weeks before I’ll ever notice them. A buddy of mine at work likes to tease me about how my voice mail light is always on. Today I happened to notice it and thought, “oh, a message. I don’t remember the last time I had one of those. Maybe this is a new one.”

Since I rarely check my messages, I had to re-learn how to use the system. Eventually, I waded through the detestable audio menus and heard my message:

“you have…. one…. new… message….. recorded on…. February… second…..”

I laughed and hung up.

  1. I went back and listened to the message. It was my sister calling to ask that I bring home her son’s candy bar box that I had put out in the break room so people could buy candy.

    …I wonder if it’s still out there?
