Description: Answering Machine messages
I can't come to the phone now because I have amnesia and I feel stupid
talking to people I don't remember. I'd appreciate it if you could help me
out by leaving my name and telling me something about myself. Thanks.

Hi. I'm probably home, I'm just avoiding someone I don't like. Leave me a
message, and if I don't call back, it's you.

Hello, this is David. I don't live here, so if you were trying to call me,
you've dialed the wrong number. On the other hand, if you were trying to
call John, Jim, or Eric, please leave your name and number at the tone. I
don't guarantee that one of them will call you back -- only that I won't.

Hi, this is George. I'm sorry I can't answer the phone right now. Leave a
message, and then wait by your phone until I call you back.

Hello, this is Ron. I'm not home right now, but I can take a message. Hang
on a second while I get a pencil. (Open a drawer and shuffle stuff around.)
OK, what would you like me to tell me?
