Please leave a message after the blah blah

Déjà, j'aime pas parler au téléphone et en plus, je deteste parler aux repondeurs parce que je raconte toujours un peu n'importe quoi.

And for the Anglophones in the audience: I hate talking on the phone, but I hate talking to answering machines even more because I always say something stupid.

Not a direct translation, but both express my attitude. I hate talking on the phone in English but it's even worse in French. In either language, it's much easier for me if I can see the person - if I can read their lips as they speak and use their body language to understand what they mean. With an answering machine, I have my hatred of the phone plus everyone's natural dislike and fear of feeling stupid when you realize you're talking to a box.
