When Jack and I went on our trip in January we used a Google Voice phone number as one of the many means of communication with family. We had some trouble with the voice part but the texting worked beautifully. A few times we tried to call family but the connection was too broken up and they would call back and leave a voicemail.
When you get a voicemail on Google Voice it translates it to an email and sends it to you. I now present to you the two messages we recieved while in Switzerland, courtesy of the translation by Google Voice:
- "Hey sides. I couldn't hear anything. No. When you called a few minutes ago, so I don't know, just can't talk. I'll knock on the old phone here but The White House. You can run, hey I need, just in case you were pregnant okay. Love You helped out. I have a good plan. Bye bye. "
- "Hi dad, passed out when you come and we were interested in the central time on it was a competitive close to me and if you wanna call back. Love you. Bye bye. "
The I realized I could actually LISTEN to the messages. Basically, they both said something totally normal like this: "Hey Sage and Jack. I coudn't hear when you called a few minutes ago but I'm at the house if you want to call back. Hope you are having a good time".
So thank you Google Voice for momentarily bringing me out of my snow/wine/cheese/hot tub induced coma into a state of total confusion. Now I'd really like to see the Google Voice interpretation of the "S&%$ Southern Women Say" videos.
Also thanks because I now have Kip's wedding song in my head.
