Weird nicknames of people you know based on the home voicemail machine absolutely butchering their name on the caller ID.
Why do new Panasonic land line phones come loaded with that awful 1980's era voice? It leads to rampant voicemailism after voicemailism.

Phone: "Your call has been forwarded to an automatic voice messaging system."
Me: "Ahh, voicemailed again."
In unison: "At the tone, please record your message. When you are finished recording you may hang up or press 1 for more options. To leave a callback number, press 5. Beep."

A situation where a conversation not meant to be heard by a third party is recorded on voicemail or answering machine, due to one participant dialling a number (perhaps unintentionally) and forgetting to hang up after the call was not answered. The voicemail then activates and records the conversation. The person, on whose voicemail the conversation was recorded, can then listen to the conversation he/she was not meant to hear, and if necessary, provide it as evidence.
Such voice messages are often of poor sound quality, due to cell phone being placed in a pocket or purse, but often can be clear enough for the listener to extract the main idea.
Kate: So, I've heard you're going out with Adam? That's just two days after I broke up with him!?
Lana: Ahm... ... Who told you?
Kate: I heard your whole conversation with Carol on my voicemail. You called me, and must have forgotten to hang up after I didn't answer.
Lana: F***! I can't believe it got caught on voicemail!
