Answering Machines

Why do they call them answering machines? I mean really. Some things don't make sense, know what I mean. They all have a message on them, telling you why the occupants of the house are not picking up the phone.
"Hello, you have reached the residence of Henry Lipshitz and Wilma Throckmorton. We are unable to take your call right now because we are in the process of reading about Aussie Mama's budding romance with James the dashing fireman (gotta love a man with a hose), and her battle with battle with a Blonde Big Breasted, bet they're implants, Bimbo Whore. Please leave a message and will get back to you."
Come on people, stick with me here. It's not like the machine is telling you anything. It doesn't tell you where they are (except if you are Henry and Wilma) or when they'll be back...nothing. Nada. So how can that be classified as an answering machine?

I dunno people. What do you think would be a good name for it?

we're-off-doing-something-more-interesting-than-talking-on-the phone machine? or maybe even more simple: an excuse machine.

Annoying machines, I mean, answering machines only serve as microphones for your mother to yell, "I know you are there PICK UP".

After years of this torture I ordered voice mail from the phone company, now she can yell all she wants and I do not have to listen!
