Rofl! I sound like I'm 12 also. It mostly sucks when I answer the phone and I get the jerks that talk down to me, like, "Can I speak with your mom, little girl? Put an adult on the phone, please." :P

my voicemail message sounds like I'm a whiney asshole who has lost his mind.

I never check my voicemail for fear that it will cost me money.

Damn celluar telephones.

damn hockey players from hell.

Atleast you get voicemail. May it be wrong some time, beats not having one for month after month.

Funny, A few decades ago *yeah umm phone made of stones* I got a phone line for my BBS (think message forum before the internet) but the computer wasn't ready so I left it disconnected for a month (just got lazy) when I figured I should plug in a phone so I can make calls. People started calling so I plugged in an old (even by those days) answering machine. "You have the wrong number thank you have a nice day" and people left messages for "Bob". This continued for another month so I answered the phone and told him he had the wrong number. The guy insisted he had the right number and demanded I put bob on the line. He claims he talked to bob at that number a week ago. I explained that I had the number for 2 months and for the last month it was an answering machine. He didn't believe me. So after that I plugged in the BBS and the calls for bob stopped (amazing what a computer screech can do)

I usually get calls from old ladies >_> On the home phone though :/
I don't get mad if it's a wrong number and they call back 2 or 3 more times since I've done that before, cause I think maybe I typed the damn thing in wrong since I suck with numbers and it's not anything new for me to accidently switch some around... or have problems telling what the number someone wrote down was :P :paranoid: I do apologize for it though

There are quite a few stories floating around the internet about people whose numbers were similar to (like a digit away from) restauants. So they'd repeatedly have to twll random callers that, no, they couldn't make them a pizza.

Heh, yeah that used to happen to me when I lived in Toronto. Nobody ever phoned me, really, and so it was very unusual to get a voicemail message. Apparently my number was one number different from a dentist's or a doctor's office, I couldn't tell which, so I'd get people leaving a message saying they wanted to make an appointment. Despite the fact that my answering thing said my name and not a doctor's. After some old guy called three times while I was away going mournfully on about his tooth (it might have been a dentist's office), I changed my message to, "If you are calling for a doctor's office, please check your number because this is not it. If you're calling for me, leave a message."

Ugh, wrong numbers suck. :C

I remember one time, when some lady called asking for her friend Gina or something. She called, I answered, she asked if Gina was there, I said no and said that she had the wrong number.

So she asked me to go get Gina. I told her, again, there's no Gina here. You've got the wrong number.

But she kept telling me to tell Gina this and tell Gina that.

I just hung up. :hmm: WRONG NUMBER MEANS WRONG NUMBER. I'm sorry, I don't like to be rude, but learn how to listen. :hmm:

A minute later, she calls back! :noes: I just ignored it.

And then another minute later, she calls again! I ignored it, because she was kinda creeping me out. :C But this time she leaves a voice mail (I've still got mine on the default "Please leave a message" one, I'm lazy and if I recorded one, it'd probably sound like crap :C), and of course, she's acting like she's leaving a message for Gina ("Oh hey Gina, just wanted to tell you blah blah blah..."), and she was about to give an ADDRESS, maybe more :C, but I just deleted that message. DAMN.

And of course, I've gotten a few phone calls IN THE MORNING. And I mean "Before six". DDDDDD: And I check the phone numbers (or at least the area codes) of people who call me, ALL of the people who call in the morning live IN MY STATE, in a city that's 2 hours or less away. :C WTF. I would understand (But not forgive them, ever) if it was telemarketers, or maybe someone in another state trying to call a friend of theirs in Michigan or something, BUT GOD DAMN PEOPLE, GO TO SLEEP. >:L I was awake for one or two of the calls, but still, DON'T do that. EVER. I've only answered like half of the calls, and they're lucky I didn't bitch them out. >:L SERIOUSLY. If you're gonna call someone when it's like three, four, five in the morning, double-check the fucking number before you call. Not everyone is awake that early. >:C

One of them was dumb. They called asking for one person, and I said no, I don't know that person, wrong number, it's four in the morning you know, etc. They just said okay (NO APOLOGY :( For waking me up), and I hung up. Then a minute or two later, they call back and ask IF I KNOW WHERE SO-AND-SO IS. :|

I really need to set my voice mail, apparently. :/ I should look for something fun to use on the internet. ;P I need to start bitching people out more too, they friggin' deserve it.
Pfffft, I make long comments too much. :C

"No habla espanol." -always handy to use in case of emergency.

I would think the most common phone message you would hear if you do sound like a 12 year old in your voicemail greeting:

"Who is this, really?"

I've had this happen a lot; I've had a spanish lady/guy call me at ten in the morning spouting off something that sounds like gibberish to me in my half awake state, and once you start speaking in english they get all offended like I had called them, and then they hang-up..... Only to call back again. And again, and again; this happened for five days straight, ranging to all sorts of hours through out the day. <.<;;

Then I had someone mistaking me for this older woman named Mrs. Eleanor or something like that, about her perscription glasses at PearlVision.....

And I especially love it when you don't answer a call 'cause you don't recognize the number (least I don't) and my voicemail says if you want me to call ya back leave a message and they don't. But they don't stop calling either @_@;

What funny is I just got my phone, so I'm like, 'How did you all get my number? It didn't even excist until a month ago~'

Ah, the ones that don't leave a message might be telephone solicitors of some sort. Which is why they keep calling back. Who knows where they get the numbers from?

Yeah the really annoying wrong number calls are the one you get at like 3 am and even after you tell them they have the wrong number they're still like "well is so and so there?"

You would think people would listen to the voice mail message thing and be able to tell that a) if you're calling for a guy and the message you're listening to is a girl's voice then you obviously have the wrong number or 2) when then name stated doesn't match who you're trying to call you have the wrong number.

Gah, I swear people are just stupid.

This happens to me all the time. I'll have the same people repeatedly calling me. One time, it was a law firm on the other side of the country, leaving confidential messages for someone named Lisa. I tried calling them to tell them they had the wrong number, but they wouldn't answer. So they kept calling me, and kept leaving me someone else's private information. I was all, "Law firm, you FAIL at confidentiality."

Oh my god I know how you feel. Once I activated my voicemail it let me listen to older voicemails that I had recieved and oh sweet jebus out of the 5 I had 3 were wrong numbers.

And I swear, one of the girls was gossiping up a storm, it was just like Gossip Girl, except I was interested for once.

bwahahaha! Awww.

I used to have this FANTASTIC answering machine message and once I started applying for studio work, I had to get rid of it-- but it was about 20 seconds long and even had background music. I'd babble and then when it would beep, half my messages were people laughing at the inbox message, lol.

I'll have to recite it for you sometime.

Ahhh, I know the feeling. I get random calls from people who either just hang up once I say hello, or say "Wring number" and hang up before I can say anything. And then there was this one guy who called my phone at three in the morning, telling me that his dog escaped from his car in the parking lot of the pound and kept asking me what my name was until I finally just hung up after sleepily telling him multiple times he had the wrong number. x)

Haha, oh wow... I'd be scared of the Spanish one, even if I could easily translate it. Something about people shouting in another language...

I don't have voicemail, but I occasionally get people who call, figure out they have the wrong number, apologize, hang up, and then call right back. I also have a pretty low voice for a girl, so it really doesn't help... x'D
