Telephone Voice

I have a very young voice over the phone. That is not a compliment because I sound really young over the phone. Young as in like a little girl young and not young as in a sexy young lady young.

My good friend Serene, says that I sound like Daisy Duck. Quack! Quack!

Once, I called up my credit card company with an enquiry and the gentleman on the other end asked me “Are you calling on your own behalf?” When I said yes, he told me “I have to check because you sound very young. I have to make sure that it is not a child making a prank call.” A child!!!

The other day I was lamenting in FB about being called “Silai”, then I was happy for a moment because the gas delivery man had called me “Amoy”. As it turned out, he only called me “Amoy” because I was speaking to him over the phone and not face to face. Hmm…… not happy about that.

Tell me my friends, how do you sound like over the phone? Do you bark, growl, whine or quack like Daisy Duck or Minnie Mouse like me? Do you have a low sexy purr, a large growl of a voice or a tiny weeny soft one like me when you speak over the phone? Do you think your telephone voice matches your real one or  your looks and personality?

  1. I don’t know how I sound. No one commented. Haha. But I don’t like hearing my own voice. When I do video recording on my children, I keep mum so I don’t record my own voice.

    Haha. You should include your voice. The children will love to hear the playback to that. 🙂

  2. i am always rushing when i am on the phone. ppl r too kind.. they say i sound younger than my age but of cos it is not true hahaha

    How do you know it is not true? Have you heard yourself? 😉

  3. My tele-voice is a low, low one. It’s been commented as either sexy (esp when having a cold! duh?) or serious, authoritative and occasionally, even (eeks!) grouchy. Sadly, the latter description applies most of the time. Nevertheless, I’m not sure if I’d really like to own a chirpy, pip-squeak one either. O well, if a grouch gets taken seriously when something needs to be done, or a complaint needs to be acted on, I suppose I can’t gripe about my voice.

    lol. If I am calling to make a complaint, I have to remind myself to conciously lower my voice so its good that you have a naturally low one. 😉
