My colleague, H, who I really don't like, is out of the country for a couple of weeks. She forwarded a voicemail to me and another colleague, J, and said "Can you please check into this message? I stated that I am out of town but I seem to have a message anyway."
J listened to the message and responded to both me and H: "This seems to be a message from Coit Cleaning informing you of specials they have running. If there's a different message you meant to send me, let me know and I will check into it."
Masquerading as a normal person day after day is exhausting.
