Just Shoot Me

So yesterday, if you called my house, you would have heard this:

"You've reached a number that has NOT been disconnected. Please leave a message after the tone, and hang up for more options."

Yesterday, Tom called me from work to say that Gabe's dentist office had called him at work to confirm today's appointment, because our home phone was disconnected.

Today if you call my house, you will hear this:

"OK, so we have to have a BORING message on the machine, because all the FUN ones have to be explained! THANK YOU!!!"

HA! Your smart-aleckiness caught up with you! Good thing it wasn't Ed McMahon!!! :)

I don't suppose you told him that a 12 year old who shall not be named was also duped by said message?

Yeah, that probably wouldn't have helped.

He knew that...but that's excusable due to the age of this particular non-named individual. However, due to the relationship of this same non-named person, and therefore the knowledge this person has of this person's (aunt's) wacky personality, the excuse is diminished to barely-there, because this person should take this person's (aunt's) personality disorder into account before making a judgement call about answering machine messages.

And if I have to change my message for Mr. McMahon, I'll just stay poor. It's the principle of the thing!
