    Mods, please feel free to move this where ever you feel it's most appropriate.

    Obviously, a lot of us here are jumping on the GoogleVoice bandwagon. One of the features of GV is the voice mail transcription. Please, do not take this as a blast agains the transcription service, I think it's great. However, it's definitly not 100% accurate and because of that, sometimes there are ... humorous ... transcriptions. I've gotten a few of those since I signed up, but the one last week was particularly funny.

    I thought it'd be fun to have a thread were folks can post some of the funny or even strange transcriptions from GV.

    My wife had just gotten a message from me (also transcribed), asking when she'd be home from grocery shopping. She pulled up in front of the house, and this is what I got from her message:


    re-texture you left made that we're voicemail. Haro. These are, would you have any Carrion groceries create. Thank you very much. I love you bye.

    This is what she actually said:

    The texts you left me that were voice mail were ... bizarre. Would you help me carry in groceries please? Thank you very much. I love you bye.

    Transcription: George celebration of over to your house a cup of tea down from above the door. It is not the key to see if any of your the worst. I don't know what you want me to do call me back on my cell 703201087 Ellum listed here for about 10 minutes. Bye.

    Reality: George Calabresa I'm over at your house, I got the key down from above the door. It is not the key that fits in your door. I don't know what you want me to do - call me back on my cell XXX-XXX-XXX"OH" I'm going to sit here for about 10 minutes. Bye.

    This is the only message I'v gotten so far in which a phone number was mis-transcribed. Needless to say, when I read this transcription, I had know idea what the heck it was even about.

    Hey Alex, Happy Thanksgiving. =
    Hey Alex, everything skinning

    and

    I just wanna make sure what letter is your building =
    I just wanna make sure the wedding matter you your building

    Maybe I shouldn't call me when you have a bit of bank. Thanks. Bye.

    Maybe you should call me when you get a second. Thanks. Bye.

    From my wife when she heard her personal voicemail for the first time...

    Hi, I was kind of leery out there for a minute, mister. So voicemail. You know what's going on. I think you have very very sweet. Give me a call back. Love you bye.

    Hi. That was kinda weird. For a minute I thought it was you, not voicemail. Calling to see what's going on. I think you are very sweet. Give me a call back. Love you bye.
