When Voicemail to Email Goes Wrong

I had to laugh when one of my friends sent me a copy of a voicemail to email she received. She was on vacation but she knew that she received a voicemail because it’s showing up on her phone as an email.

In these days of Universal Communication, there are lots of ways for people to get in touch with you and for you to reply to them. There’s email, desk phone, soft phone, cell phone, voicemail, IM, text and more. But sometimes that technology doesn’t work as expected.

She said she “thinks” this is from a colleague who is going to check the air quality and/or for mold or other allergens in their current building. She had asked about it a week or so ago when several co-workers were having sneezing and coughing issues after moving into the new suite–and it had just been cleaned (supposedly pretty well). She said she’s not going to mess with it until she gets back from vacation on Monday, but it’s a good thing the recording is there, because the voicemail to email she received was nothing like the intended message.
