Answering machine

Good morning.  At present we are not at home but please leave your message after you hear the beep.   Beeeeeppp…

If you are one of our children, press 1 and then select the option from 1 to 5 in order of “arrival” so we know who it is.

If you need us to stay with the children, press 2.

If you want to borrow the car, press 3.

If you want us to wash your clothes and do the ironing, press 4.

If you want the grandchildren to sleep here tonight, press 5.

If you want us to pick up the kids at school, press 6.

If you want us to prepare a meal for Sunday or to have it delivered to your home, press 7.

If you want to come to eat here, press 8.

If you need money, press 9.

If you are going to invite us to dinner, or, take us to a restaurant, start talking – we are listening.

    That’s funny! But from the perspective of one whose children live far far away, I would love to have a bit of that ‘drop in’ madness. 😦

    Love this and changing the message on my machine. Ours will be: “Press 0 if you need money, because that’s how much you’re getting!”

  1. A GRANDPARENT’S LAUGH | Parents Are People Too - November 6, 2012

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
