My company pays for part of my cell phone bill each month, which is great. Downfall: I have to have a slightly lame corporate-y voicemail message, which tends to leave people very confused about who and why they are calling.

But usually, as I mainly know funny and smart people, the caller is quick to play along and request a corporate apartment. I’ve had dozens of messages, monologues even!  whole characters created! in which the caller pretends to be a pretentious british businessman, a confused Indian traveller, a child, a more businessy version of their own selves, etc. Um, maybe you should call me right now and try it, because it is fun.
