I called my son, Adam, and I heard him respond, “Hello? Hello?”
“Adam, it’s mom,” I said.
“Hello? Your reception is terrible. Try moving to a better spot,” Adam said.
I walked to the other side of the room. “How’s that? Any better?”
“I can hardly hear you,” he said. “Try moving to a different spot.”
I walked to the other side of the room. “How’s that?” I said a little louder.
“I can barely hear you. Can you move around?”
I walked to a different spot. Now yelling, I said, “Can you hear me now?” And then I heard…
“This is Adam’s voicemail. Please leave your name and number and he’ll call you back.”
Today’s humor challenge: Leave something humorous on your outgoing voicemail message.
You can have fun AND give folks calling you a reason to smile. Over the years I’ve collected dozens and dozens of humorous outgoing voicemail messages. Here are a few of my favorites. Try one of these, search for other funny messages, or make up one of your own (and send it to me for my collection!).
That’s today’s humor challenge. Have fun. Be creative. Create a funny outgoing voicemail message. Voicemail has become a way of life. Might as well make it fun!
That’s it! Congratulations for committing to another day. I hope you’ll join me tomorrow for the next humor challenge. I’m Karyn Buxman reminding you to create a humor habit and reap the benefits. Humor is power!
