Answering Machine Menu For Parents & Grandparents

My young grandson was visiting for Christmas and, out of the blue, he asked me how old I was. I told him 75.

He was very quiet for a moment, and then he asked, “Did you start at one?”


Answering machine menu all Parents and Grandparents should use:

If you are one of our children, dial 1 and then select the option from 1 to 4 in order of “birth” so we know who it is.

If you need us to babysit the children, press 2

If you want to borrow the car, press 3

If you need toilet paper or groceries, press 4

If you want the grandchildren to sleep here tonight, press 5

If you want us to pick up the kids at school, press 6

If you want us to prepare a meal for you and have it delivered to your home, press 7

If you want to come to eat here, press 8

If you need money, press 9

If you are going to invite us to dinner, or make arrangements to take us to the theater,

start talking… we are all ears !!!

  1. 8’D , 8’D , OMG I’m still laughing! That menu is so long they would have hung up after the second option anyway!
    And in any case, I haven’t even heard from mine in over a month!
    I guess they had a great xmas and I guess I will hear about it eventually.
    But for now, it is all silence. So my menu is very short cos they know better than to ring and ask for stuff!
    I offer, they don’t get to demand!
