"Don't mess with little old ladies in Texas"
This audio clip reportedly originated with an operations manager who worked for Jack-in-the-Box in the Dallas, Texas area.
The manager was running late for a meeting and called his boss to tell him that he was on his way. As he was leaving the voice mail message, he witnessed an accident and went on to provide a "play by play" of the incident. This is the actual voice mail message.
This clip was apparently passed along and forwarded so many times within Jack-in-the-Box, it crashed their voice mail server.
