(Pick up the phone and say:) This is Chris. I'm not here right now. Leave me a message. BEEP. (Then listen.
Hello, we are all currently home, but someone stole our phone... And the recording tape from this answering machine. So you can't reach us until we either find a phone or get a tape. If you had to waste a quarter on this call... Sorry.
This is Jeff, you're not in now, so I'll leave a message.
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.
