Answering Machine Messages

I got two tickets to a Show at the last minute and I tried to find someone to go with me. First, I called Amanda. The phone Rang and rang and then her answering machine Picked up.

“Hi, I’m not in right now. Leave me a message and I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.”

Amanda wasn’t home or she was Screening her calls. I didn’t want to leave a message and decided to try Celia. The phone rang about six times and then I heard,

“This is the Voicemail for Celia. Leave me a message after the long Beep. Or, you can try my cell phone at 213-555-1212. Have a nice day.‚”

By this time, I was starting to feel Discouraged. I didn’t want to go to the show by myself, so I tried one last time. I called Leslie at work.

“Hello, you’ve Reached the office of Leslie Munroe. I am in a meeting or with a Client. I’m sorry to miss your call. Please stay On the line And leave a Detailed message. I will Return your call as soon as I can. Thank you for calling.‚”

I decided to leave a message. Leslie called me Right back and we made plans for the show. We had a great time.
