Me: Hi, you called?
Mom: Yes, did you get my message?
Me: Not yet. I didn't check the voice mail.
Mom: The lady said she'd deliver my message right away!
Me: What lady? You left a message at my office?
Mom: No, the lady on your cell phone.
Me: A live lady?
Mom: No, the recording. She promised she'd deliver the message right away.
Me: Um, Mom, the lady on the recording promised you this?
Me: And you believed her?
At which point we both started laughing.
