  4. I’m not available to give a witty answer to this thread at the moment, but if you’d like to leave a message, please speak after the tone.

    Beeeeeeeeep.
     
  5. Two seconds of silence, a just audible sigh then click, burrrr.

  11. I have a landline answer phone, its brilliant. Phone rings twice, machine cuts in with standard message, they cut off. Or sometimes the scammers leave a computer message but I never pickup I delete it later. On the occasion their number is recorded, I send it to BT's nuisance calls service and they block it. The latest scammer was a number from a Scottish remote village telling me my credit card had been compromised, the caller was a recorded American accent. Their number went to BT for blocking and investigating.

    Of course if the call is from someone I know, they leave me a message and I call them back. Works for me.

  19. You may, in the frozen north, have heard it referred to as the "jelly bone"? My Gramps used to call it that anyway
