Hearing This Voicemail—and Knowing That It Went to the Wrong Person—Will Make You Cry

Click to viewStop whatever you're doing right now and go tell your dear ones that you love them. You'll be glad you did once you listen to this voicemail recording.


The 90-second message was left on a phone belonging to a Diane Potts—not the mysterious Samantha whom the speaker addresses. The message allows us to guess that the caller is most likely a British soldier deployed in Afghanistan and that the person he was attempting to reach is his pregnant sweetheart, but that's about it. There's not enough information for any of us to track down Samantha and make sure that she knows that she's dearly loved—and that the father of her child wants to marry her.

Now do you understand why I told you to remind your dear ones that you love them while you can? Good. Now go do it again. [Telegraph]

Nothing to See Here!

I would tell the person I love that I love them, but I say that everyday and she gets really bugged by it unless she's being a sheep.

Meh, she hates me -_- unless she's being a sheep (I hope she's being a sheep and loves me too....)

Just yesterday I got a mysterious voicemail. It was a teacher, calling someone's mum (Vikki/Vicki) that the teacher had seen Vikki's son (Reece).

Doubt it was from my school.

If this was received on an iPhone, then perhaps O2 are sending voicemails to the wrong numbers.
