The best thing about Bridget Jones's Diary is where she describes her mother leaving the following message on her answering machine (very loudly and clearly): "Bridget Jones's mother."

Annie Dillard's mother, portrayed brilliantly in An American Childhood also had some interesting phone eccentricities--upon receiving a wrong number call, she would hand over the phone to one of her children with the instruction, "Your name is Claire", or simply, "It's for you."
