Who remembers this fun from the 80s?



Wait for the beep.. you gotta leave your name, you gotta leave your number...

These were the COOLEST! Does anyone even have answering machines anymore? Does anyone even have land lines anymore???

We have a machine on a land line! My hubby is an engineer so he's very much into the "just the facts m'am" type of message. I always wanted something cool like these. They still could be used on cells for voicemail.

Minor rant:
It should be a law that all recorded messages must identify the speaker, by name
or number reached.

Don't be so narcissistic to think that everyone knows your voice by ear. ;) ;)

Yeah I do.
Have you ever misdialed and not known it?

I just consider it to be a bit of a failure of common politeness and etiquette...
But I am old fashioned that way, Andy.
