Do not drink while listening to voice mails
When I get a call from a number with an area code that I don’t recognize, I usually let it go to voice mail. This time of the year most of those calls are:
people wanting to lower my mortgage — Mortgage rates are at historic lows.
people wanting to give me health insurance — I got health insurance on July 1, 2012, courtesy of Obama and the Affordable Care Act but not all of the insurance companies know that yet so some are still calling.
people wanting a home inspection — Home inspections are how I make most of the money that I use to pay my bills.
Earlier today a person left a voice mail requesting information about a home inspection. When I called the number she left, I got her voice mail. Here’s what her voice mail greeting said:
“I am not available right now but thank you for caring enough to call. I am making some changes in my life. Please leave a message after the beep. If I do not return your call, you are one of the changes.”
I nearly choked on my margarita but succeeded in spitting it all over my desk instead. My keyboard is now all sticky and smells like a margarita.
MORAL: Do not drink while listening to voice mails.
