It’s actually something I do for my other job. It’s supposed to go on at night because no one’s there. That way if someone needs to get a hold of the office, they can leave a message. So there’s a note. Turn on the answering machine when leaving for the day.
I don’t think I’ve forgotten to do that yet.
I did, however, forget that a long time ago, I decided to be funny with my voicemail message. It was something I saw somewhere else, didn’t make it up so I can’t take credit for it, but until someone new comments on it, I always forget that I have a somewhat unique message:
“We are the Borg. You will be assimilated. Resistance is futile. But we’re not here right now, so leave a message and we’ll assimilate you later.”
I should probably change that… but I’ll just forget again.
