There are no words for what just happend to my co-worker while trying to make a call to another business.  Simply hysterical.  I thought anyway. 

He dials the number and after a few seconds, hangs up the phone while claiming “whoa”.  I immediately said something about him dialing a “bad number” and that $2.99 will be deducted from his next paycheck for the call. 

We were laughing so hard that he could barely tell me what it was.  Finally, here’s what went down:

A woman’s voicemail stating “I’m not here right now but if you’d like to leave a message, i’ll get back to you.  If you’d like to leave a sexy message, i’ll get back to you sooner.”

I was laughing even harder after he disclosed that information.  Who knew a simple call to the water company would turn into the funniest event of the day?   He said he wasn’t able to leave a sexy message with me in the room and now he’ll know who to call if he gets lonely. 

It may not be much, Sweet World, but i thought it was simply hilarious.  I guess it’s one of those “ya had to be there” moments.  Oh well……

  1. Laughter in the workplace makes it all worthwhile. I popped over from your comment on Shutter Sisters and am off to check out your Etsy shop now!

  2. that is funny! today my co-worker’s husband was playing a prank of his friend. he placed an add on craigslist advertising for a free fruit basket (don’t ask, it is apparently something dirty) and posted the co-workers numbers. i called and said “yes, i’m calling about the craigslist add for a free fruit basket?” and the guys were laughing so hard they were crying. I didn’t get it, but at least they found it funny.

  3. Oh, my goodness! I was just stopping by from SITS, and this has got to be the funniest telephone oops EVER!

  6. hmm… wonder what her occupation was?

    actually, i once worked as a telemarketer…i am not meant for that kind of work, but the pay was good and it was a summer job so i decided to make myself do it…

    one time a guy i called started telling me i had a nice voice (i have an awful voice on the phone) and wondered how old i was. we weren’t supposed to, but i hung up on him. it was weird…

  7. Oh, that is funny. I love when I get a good recording. It’s like a good TV commercial. Makes it worth it.


  8. Hi – thanks for stopping by my blog! 🙂

    That was pretty funny – I love when the voicemail recordings are unique and not just the same old bore.

  9. That is histerical!!! I would just love to hear the messages people leave her!
