The voicemail in all its… errr… glory

If, like me, you read the article Tom mentioned and though “but where’s the audio?!” well, here you go. Because I don’t want you to have to spend the sixty seconds on Google that I did.

Seriously, what’s wrong with this woman? You call a teenager to castigate them for leaving a phone message, and you behave worse in your message than he did in his?

UPDATE: Gone from YouTube but still over here being used *snort* to shill a voice to mp3 service.

Just in case they take it down, here’s the transcript from the above page.

“This is Candy Tistadt, Dean Tistadt’s wife. This message is for Dave Kori. How dare you call us at home?! If you’ve got a problem with going to school, you do not call somebody’s house and complain about it. My husband was up at 4 o’clock this morning, trying to decide the best thing to do, to send you to school, on a day when the weather man is calling for one thing and another thing happens. You don’t begin to know what you are talking about, and don’t you ever call here again! My husband has been at the office since 6:30 this morning, so don’t you even suggest that he purposely didn’t answer his phone. He is out almost every single night of the week at meetings for snotty-nosed little brats, and he may not have called you but it is not because he’s home because it snowed. Get over it kid, and go to school. Get an education, that’s what you’re there for.”

UPDATE 2: Here’s another audio recording.

    That’s pretty messed up. Maybe it was a bit inappropriate for the kid to call the guy’s home, but this is much worse. An adult should know better than to leave a message like that.

    That’s my feeling. The kid might have been a jackass from start to finish but HE’S A KID. For him to behave that way is far less disappointing than for an adult to treat him that way. Particularly if we’d like to train him to behave better.

    Wow, you beat me to this one. ;) I thought both of them were dumbasses for different reasons. Of course, a dumbass is a dumbass is a…

    Well, you get the picture.

    A wonderful display of bad judgment all around, but I’d hardly call a high school senior "a kid." Assuming employers and colleges actually Google possible hires, good look in the future Mr. Kori…

    If I was hiring someone fresh out of school something like this that happened when they were 17 wouldn’t be a deal-breaker for me. Unless they still seemed like a jackass.

    A poor decision made as a senior in high school would not necessarily prevent me from hiring the kid after his graduation. On the other hand, if in researching this grown woman who wanted me to employ her in any capacity (except maybe as a bill collector), it would be far more damaging. The kid shouldn’t have called their home but it can be written off to immaturity and lack of life experience. Her response, however, shows a complete inability to exercise rational judgment. Can you imagine if she reacted that way in a professional setting?

    "This video has been removed by the user." Sounds like somebody got a C&D letter from a lawyer.
