If you've suddenly remembered that you've had tickets for a concert out of town for months and need us to pick grandson up from school tomorrow and keep him overnight, press.........

If you are child 5 and need to moan about your ex-husband please press x.

If you are child 2 and you want to moan about your mother in law again please press xx

And on Mumsnet

If you are a grandparent with IT issued, press 14 but I still don't work for Microsoft / Apple / in the IT field

If you are a grandparent that wants to moan about the other grandparent press 15 but have heard it all before

If you are a grandparent that wants to dictate how your daughter spends her own money (but will accept no criticism for how you spend your money) press 16 but don't expect a call back

If you are a grandparent that wants to say how easy the youth of today have it and how it was so much harder in your day and that you don't know the day you are born, please replace the handset and speak to Grandad.

Forwarded to DD. Got a wry smile emoticon and a request to know how her ironing was coming along. I THINK it was ironic ๐Ÿ˜€
