To leave a callback number, press five

Driving home, I got a call from an unfamiliar Maryland phone number. I didn't pick it up, and after a few moments, I got notification of a new voicemail.

The message was short. It started with classical musical in the background, and then a sweet old-lady voice chimed, "Wrong number. So sorry!"

It was adorable, and so nice of her to explain. Most people would just hang up, I presume. I was mad at myself as soon as I deleted it. It was a perfect candidate for The Voicemail Project, whose founder was in town over the weekend to talk about the project. Very cool idea. You can listen to some of the voicemails she's captured at the project's myspace page.
