I had no idea trick voicemail greetings still existed … but apparently they do!


Last night I called out to someone and had this exchange:

Member: Hello?

Me: Hello, (begin my standard greeting script)

Member (interrupting): You know, you’re going to have to speak up, I can’t hear you.

Me: Ok! (starting over, louder this time)

Member (in an irritated tone of voice, interrupting again): You know, you should really start out by telling me what you’re calling about. I don’t even know what you want.

Me: … ok? I’m calling from (name of company) –

Member: Do you even know who this is?

Me: …

Member: This is the President of the United States!

At this point I realized that the voice that seemed vaguely familiar the entire time, was someone impersonating Donald Trump. I muted my phone and let it play for about four minutes before I finally hung up.


What do you think?
