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.
