I shouldn’t talk to someone after 5 P.M., really, I shouldn’t because more than likely they are out of the office. I, of course, take this as the opportunity to call and leave a message that is both chipper and possibly weird if you are the other person on the line. It went something like this:
In a chipper and happy voice, “Hi *name of person*, I just wanted to call you back because I just found out about my acceptance to the university I applied to. This just means that I will not be able to work with you and I am very upset but also really excited to be going to my university. If you have any questions feel free to call me back. Bye!”
Yeah, this is the most awkward voicemail I have left and this is why I hate to talk on the phone with people who are not my family because I just babble. I cannot tell you how awkward it was to leave that message and let all of what I said sink in.
What is the most awkward voicemail or text that you have left for someone?
