Google Voice is great, but . . .

Google Voice sends me an e-mail and a text when someone leaves me a voice message. It's a great idea, but the translator they use doesn't work all that well. Here's the message from my roommate Eric this morning while I was in class:

"Hey Jordan here and flusher. It's Dean collect on this, But 3 inches long trying to touch is. Yeah, I just wanna let you know I'm gonna so growing Custer's right now come up and it."

Yeah, I was confused too. My roommate was gonna bring me up my flash drive that I had forgotten at home (I was already on campus). Here's what the voicemail actually said, from my own translation:

"Hey Jordan, I think I got your flash drive. It says Dane Elect. It's 1 gigabyte. About 3 inches long, has rounded edges. Um, I just wanted to let you know I got it. You're probably in class or something right now. Just wanted to let you know. I'll come up at nine and give it to you."

Yes, my roommate had just recently woken up and probably slurred some words together, but still. It's really funny when I get the translations of my voicemail messages.

This is one that I got from Jordan

" Your message say my name in it. Wed. Probably not. I just wanted to Hanson very well. I'm just wondering why you were asking for getting back if you plan on coming over because we're heading out and within like 10 minutes or so, yeah. If you have some good for a 82. If not, that's ok. He still at bye. "
