Always have a script when doing your voicemail.

I finally got my own phone today. Sort of. I was inheriting a phone extension from our team lead, who now doesn’t have a phone (long story). So I was recording my messages and was quite glad that I was able to re-record the greetings. Why? Because I was producing such gems as these:

“Hi, you’ve reached [Flounder] at [number]. If you’re trying to reach [Team lead], he’s…[totally forgetting what I was going to say]…sh*t.”

I then went back and wrote a script.

After I got my greeting properly recorded, I then had to record the one for while I’m on the phone. “Hi, you’ve reached [Flounder] at [number]. I’m on the phone right now, but once I get off….”

Officemate starts laughing, I start laughing.

I then went back and wrote a script.

I did manage to say my name for the automated greeting without a script. Whoo hoo!
