    Those came out when I was a kid. One time I was calling someone, got a wrong number. It was one of those machines that answered. The guy said the number, so I knew right away. Later I got to thinking. His tone of voice was so smug, like he thought he was a bigshot because he had a machine to answer HIS phone. My friends were told….He got a lot of prank calls. This, fortunately, was before Caller ID.

    Dilbert, you’re an engineer, not a philosopher!

    Wonder what message Sheldon from Big Bang Theory would leave?
    Or did they cover that? I haven’t seen all of the episodes.

    Sheldon probably has Caller ID liked to a reverse directory search to generate a message along the lines of:
    “Good morning/afternoon/evening [caller name], this is Dr Sheldon Cooper. I’m doing something far too important, which you wouldn’t inderstand, to be able to answer the phone at the moment, but if you leave a message on this digital answering machine, which I have customised to my personal requirements, I’ll consider calling you back if what you say interests me. You have ten seconds or 100 words, whichever is shorter.”

    I have an answering machine that speaks in 3 languages: English, Spanish and French. I use the French message and people hang up right away. It’s great!

    Good first line.

    I always got a kick out of the people who would tell me, ’Don’t say, “I’m not home right now” on your message because that way a burglar would know that you’re not home and then break into your house.
    They REALLY said that.

    I never thought of that! I’m replacing my greeting with “Hi. I can’t take your call right now because I’m busy guarding the house with my .50 BMG. Please leave a message after the tone.”

    That sounds correct for Sheldon. Such a pompous self important jackass he is. (Part of the humor of the character.)

    @Jon Hra

    I guess that works if you don’t like to be called.
