I'm itching to change my voice mail greeting, but can't decide which one to use. Help me decide.
¤ Married white male seeks name and number of the person calling. Any other details optional. Will respond ASAP.
¤ Aah voice mail, the polite way of saying "I don't want to talk to you." Leave a message and I'll call back when the mood strikes.
¤ Just as tofu is a poor substitute for meat, so this message is for my answering my phone, but if you will accept this placebo, I will give you the real thing as soon as possible.
¤ First you hear a ring, then I hear some people sing. I'm very busy, please don't pout. I couldn't answer, I was out.
¤ Seven out of ten voices in my head say I should call you back. The other three wanted me to answer the phone. Sorry, majority rules!
and finally, since i'm a "super" fan ...
¤ Sorry I couldn't take your call. I left my phone in my pants on the floor of the phone booth I was changing in before flying up, up, and away. Leave a message and my mild mannered alter ego will return your call.
