We have a land-line. Shocking, right? Frank works from home and uses it for his job. The only other person who has the number is my sister, Cathy. Cathy and I have a standing call every Sunday night, but sometimes, I'm not home. When that happens, and even sometimes when it doesn't, Cathy will call me every night, at 7pm, until she reaches me. In the meantime she leaves messages when I'm not home.
Our phone is through the bundle with Comcast and one of the features is that it will email you a transcript of the message that was left. Let me tell you, Comcast has a way to go in regards to my sister's wording and language...
For instance, here's a recent translation:
Joe it's 3:00 financing-she'll(?) I call you tell you was home today. I kinda look for diabetic shoes for tonight and so Kim's gonna call Monday and see if I might get some going Chicago Park mall(?) workshop Monday. I'll call you tonight and-class-issue-here(?) today and doesn't-skip(?). Bye.Love you. Bye
First off, I know she is starting the call with "Cheryl", not "Joe" but there you go. Sometimes I'm tempted not to answer the phone just to see what Comcast has to say. It's always entertaining!
