Is It Me You’re Not Looking For

| Boston, MA, USA | Working | April 25, 2013

(My voice mail message is a recording of me singing the chorus of “Hello” by Lionel Richie with the words changed to include my name, number, etc. On this day, I notice my doctor’s office calling, and that I already have a missed call from them. I pick up the phone.)

Me: “Hello?”

Receptionist: “Wait, is this [my name]?”

Me: “Yes, this is she.”

Receptionist: “Darn it! I just called and got your voicemail, and it was so cute I called right back to hear it again! Why did you have to pick up the phone?”

Me: “I’m sorry?”

Receptionist: “Well, that’s okay. It is a great voicemail, though.”

Me: “Oh, uh, thanks…”

(She called back again the next day, presumably to hear my voicemail again because she didn’t leave a message!)
