Here’s a tip. When calling your boss and leaving a voicemail, always check that you’ve hung up properly before continuing with your activities, especially if they involve making a drug deal. If you don’t, you may end up fired, just like Joseph Stankiewicz did.
He claims that it’s not him on the recording, but a judge noticed that the voice is the same, and it even mentions expecting a call back from his work and tells his companion to be quiet if he gets a call back. So um, he’s kinda busted.
Also included in this article is a long list of other folks who didn’t learn how to properly hang up or dial their phones, including the dude who meant to call his friend, but called his boss. He somehow didn’t notice he had dialed wrong, and left a big ol’ message on the machine about how much his boss was driving him insane.
This reminds me of something that happened to me. I was back at guide dog school getting Babs, and a friend called me to see how I was doing. We talked for a while and I said I wanted to call mom and dad, but it was tricky to do that, since there was only one phone in the hall. My friend said she had conference calling capabilities, so she could connect me with mom and dad. I thought this was a great idea, and asked her if she would do that. She called them, but we got their answering machine. I left a message, and then I thought she had hung up. So we were gabbing away…and…then I heard the old familiar boop boop that means you’re approaching the limit for the answering machine! We were still leaving a voicemail! I asked her to erase it, and she tried, but failed. So mom and dad got a voicemail complete with a bunch of swearing. They took it well. I turned 40 shades of red.
