Funny Answering Machine & Voicemail Messages

Funny Answering Machine Messages

In 1935, Willy Müller invented the world’s first automatic answering machine. It was a three-foot-tall machine popular with Orthodox Jews who were forbidden to answer the phone on the Sabbath. Then in 1960, the Ansafone, created by inventor Dr. Kazuo Hashimoto (Phonetel), was the first answering machine sold in the USA. In 1971, PhoneMate introduced one of the first commercially viable answering machines, the Model 400. It weighed 10 pounds and held 20 messages on a reel-to-reel tape.

Sadly, most people who use answering machines or voice mail have the standard greeting of, “Hi, this is ____. I’m not here right now. Leave a message and I’ll get back to you.” Isn’t that boring? Wouldn’t you rather spice up your greeting with something that will make people smile, laugh or think? The ideas on this page will help you come up with a more creative greeting for your machine. If you think you can do better, then leave your own ideas on the bottom of this page.

I don’t know, but i’ll figure it out. You just need to leave your full name and why your calling, and after I get this message (I may never get it because I may not like you) I will call you back unless I don’t like you. Oh, if I might do that, I will need your phone number to. And if your a cute guy, I’m not this confusing in real life. Oh well, just leave that info after the ironic little beep that will go off in about five seconds, and if I don’t like you, constantly call me a ninja. That makes me feel better. BEEP!
