Good Signs for Canberra’s AM Commercial Radio Stations Twitter – failed experiment

Yes I’m Tony, that’s why I call myself Samuel

That was odd, I missed a call on my mobile around 12:20pm today, and it went through to my voicemail. What followed was quite extraordinary.

If you listen to the sound file you will note that my voicemail greeting contains my full name, so why the caller (by the name of Matt) decided that leaving a message on my voicemail would be the best way to ensure that their message got through to “Tony” is beyond me.

When I fist heard the message, my phone cut out during the word “Tony”, so I called Matt to ensure that the call wasn’t actually meant for me, which he confirmed…in fact he seemed to be able to work that out simply from my voice, perhaps he remember leaving the erroneous message on my voicemail, in which case I have to wonder why he didn’t hang up without leaving a message, did he really feel such a strong urge to make the flagfall on the call seem worthwhile?
