Things I Don’t Understand . . . . No. 4

20 March 2012

We have an answering machine on our land line.  If someone calls and we don’t answer, a message is played saying the usual “There’s no-one available to take your call at the moment.  Please leave a message after the bleep. When you have finished recording, please hang up”. 

Well, there’s my first question.  What do we expect people will do EXCEPT hang up?

After the message has been left, and the caller has hung up, the voice then very politely says “Thank you for your call”.

WHY?  The caller has already hung up.  Who is she talking to?

  2. Big chuckle here! Ours does the same thing!
