Using Funny Voicemail Greetings

funny voicemail greetingsWith voicemail being so widely used the messages sometimes all start to sound the same. Funny voicemail messages can stir things up a bit, break the monotony and put a smile all the callers face. They are also memorable and if truly funny will be repeated. However, care must be taken also when you decide to use funny voicemail greetings. Before you use a greeting always consider:

Is it appropriate? There are those who say funny messages are inappropriate for business. It depends on the type of business you are in to some extent. A law firm or a mortuary probably shouldn’t use funny voicemail greetings but if you’re in the DJ business it probably wouldn’t hurt.

What is funny to you may not be to others. Think about who might hear your message. Some may be offended or annoyed by what you consider amusing.

Will it discourage some callers from leaving messages? For example many people leave messages intended to be funny that lead the caller to believe they have the wrong number. If the caller doesn’t know you but it’s important they may just hang up before your message clarifies it’s a joke.

Always consider who may call you and how they might react before using a funny message.

Examples of Funny Voicemail Greetings

The following are a few examples of funny voicemail greetings:

  • “Fred’s voicemail is broken. This is his refrigerator. Please speak very slowly, and I’ll stick your message to myself with one of these magnets.”

  • “Hi, this is John’s voicemail. He’s not here, but I’m open to suggestions.”

  • “Susan can’t come to the phone right now. She’s either saving the universe from some unnamed danger or taking a nap. Leave your name and number after the beep and she will return your call.”
