My Super-Cool Voicemail Greeting

August 3, 2011 - 12:00 pM

A while back I was bored and decided to come up with a creative new voice mail greeting. Here it is:


Press star any time to skip this message and go straight to the beep!

If you don’t want to leave a message, you can call me back later, text me, or just hang up.

But since you're still here, let me confirm a few things.

  • Yes, you did reach the number you dialled.
  • And this really is my voicemail.
  • Which you can skip by pressing star.

Since you’re still here, sit back and relax. This might take a while!

You probably already guessed that I’m either screening my calls, away from my phone, or I just didn’t hear it ring.

And I’m sure you know the drill. Wait for the tone; then leave a message:

  • Leave your name if I won’t recognize your voice.
  • Your number if I don’t already know it.
  • And your reason for calling, ‘cuz I’m not psychic! If I was, would you really be leaving voicemails?

And next time you call, save yourself some time, and press star, it will take you straight to the: *beep*

And yes, pressing star really does work if your service provider is Fido, and it may work with other providers as well.



Moms and Mani-Pedis

August 01, 2011 - 8:00 pM

Here are my top 3 reasons why at-home mother-daughter mani-pedis are a terrible idea:

  1. "Try beige, dear. This red one makes you look like a prostitute".
  2. "Mom, is that pet hair sticking to my toenails?!? Have you been letting the cat sleep on the bed again?"
  3. "Oh dear. My eyesight just isn't what it used to be. Let me try again! You know, when I was your age, I used to give the most amazing pedicures!"
