How to leave a voice mail message

This morning, somebody called me and left a one-minute voice mail message. She had the wrong number, though, but still left a long message. Oh yeah, she was calling another woman.

My voice mail greeting is all me. I’m a guy. Wait, do I sound feminine? Great.

Anyway, it reminded me of terrible voice mail messages.

If you haven’t before, listen to this podcast by Merlin Mann. I know it’s old, but it still holds true. Merlin talks for less than five minutes because he gets the point across without any fluff. You’ll love his humor, too.
