Have you heard of Google Voice?
The hubs signed his phone up for it. I have to admit, it is pretty handy to have. If he can’t find his cell phone – which, I wish I could say rarely happens – he is able to give me a call through his computer/our email and let me know. Supposedly, you can even use your phone number to answer calls on your computer – but that ability isn’t available in our neck of the woods yet.
Probably the best part: the fact that he gets his voicemail in our email box now. It saves the actual recording, but tries to type out what the message says as well. Even better – 99.9% of the time, the computer messes up the messages TERRIBLY.
- The hubs’s message, as you would hear it on voicemail: “Hi [the hubs], it’s Tiffanie. Kingston is fine to stay however long you need – I’m here, don’t worry about it. He’s fine; he hasn’t taken very many naps today, so maybe he’ll fall asleep I don’t know. But he’s fine – talk to you later. Bye.”
- The hubs’s message, as you would see it typed in email: “Hi Kurt, Stephanie Kingston, that’s fine. Thursday however long. I’m here. Don’t worry about it. He’s doing fine. You haven’t taken very many birthday, so maybe we’ll follow through. I don’t know. But you fine talk to you later. Bye.”
(Oh, and by the way, the hubs’s name is very far from Kurt….)
