I had an answerphone message that went...
"Hello? Hello? Who is it? Speak up, I can't hear you! What do you want? Speak up, for goodness sake...."
I loved it.
Callers, less so.

I think you're sweet to do the Christmas thing.

A now long passed away uncle used to hate answering the phone and only ever did so under duress. When he had to , he always answer with the same message ''Hello, Maidstone Police'' - It put off the cold callers anyway.

If it was family, the always replied ''Good morning inspector''

well it will cheer up the cold callers... we normally answer with you'll have to speak up I am wearing a towel (simpsons reference)

I might just get away with it - think I will

LunaLoveg00d Thu 22-Dec-16 09:17:38

I'd put the phone down on someone who answered like that, and call their doctor as they'd quite obviously lost their marbles.

Are you 12?

Am I the only person who thinks Elf is shit? blush

It's not that I don't like Christmas - I love it! I just don't get why Elf is suddenly seen as the pinnacle of festive cinema.

the best way to spread christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear!


coffeetasteslikeshit Thu 22-Dec-16 09:32:07

I love Elf... it's so silly, really makes me laugh and remember how much fun Christmas used to be when it wasn't the stress fest it is now.

APlaceOnTheCouch Thu 22-Dec-16 09:45:50

dollydaydream you are not alone. I hate Elf much prefer Arthur Christmas or It's A Wonderful Life

Creatureofthenight Thu 22-Dec-16 09:53:44

I don't really like Elf either. Give me The Muppet Christmas Carol any day!

lozzylizzy Thu 22-Dec-16 09:54:48

My sister used to get in serious trouble for answering the landline with 'Hello, Sexline'. I think it was worth it for her though.

VanillaSugarAndChristmasSpice Thu 22-Dec-16 15:21:49

How can you not like Elf??????

Do you not like chocolate either?

Congratulations! !!! YOU DID IT!!The World's Best cup of coffee! Well done!

Creatureofthenight Thu 22-Dec-16 15:23:37

I don't really like Will Ferrel tbh.
I love chocolate!

PJBanana Thu 22-Dec-16 15:42:32

Anyone who thinks you're being U is a cotton headed ninnymuggins, OP.


APlaceOnTheCouch Thu 22-Dec-16 15:43:42

Yeah, another one who fails to see the appeal of Will Ferrel - I don't really believe in his innocence and that's central to the film being a success.
I do like chocolate . . .and I do <grudgingly tries to dredge up an Elf related compliment> like when they sing at the end.
