Have you ever seen the skit “Ernestine, the Telephone Operator”? It was a role that actress Lily Tomlin was famous for on the early 70’s ? show Laugh In.
Her telephone operator voice was high and nasally. Very irritating yet humorous.
Well I just got a call from a company that wanted to know if we needed new doors or window replacements and the person who called had a voice just like the operator. I don’t know if she was faking it or if that was her real voice. Poor thing if that’s the way she really talks!
That reminds me of another funny voice Chris and I heard recently … A couple of months ago Chris and I went through a McDonald’s drivethru after taking our puppy to her training class. The person who took our order decided it would be funny to pretend to be a dumb chick with a high pitched voice. Turns out it was a guy when we got to the pickup window.
I know it’s probably not as funny hearing about these funny voices that we’ve been subject to lately as hearing them in real life, but it was funny. How do you not crack up when some telemarketer calls you and they sound like a humorous TV character?
Have you heard any funny voices lately? Telemarketers or perhaps someone serving you in a store or restaurant?
