Hilarious moment father pretends to be an answer service when six-year old son will not go to sleep 


‘I’m sorry Mummy is not available. Please hang up and try again’: Hilarious moment father pretends to be an answer service when his six-year old son will not go to sleep

  • Kes Bracey, 45, from Dorset, answers six-year-old son with ‘automated response’ 
  • Dexter is frustrated to hear: ‘Sorry, mummy is not available, please try again’  
  • Clip was filmed by his mother Tia Roos, 37, who then went to tuck Dexter in again

A tired father pretends to be an automated phone service as he struggles to get his son to sleep at bedtime in hilarious footage. 

Photographer Kes Bracey, 45, from West Bay, Dorset, is seen sitting at the bottom of the stairs whilst having a pretend ‘call’ with his son Dexter, six.

In the video, which starts halfway through the interaction, Dexter can be heard asking his father, ‘Now when is she available?’

Mr Bracey replies in a robotic voice: ‘I’m sorry, mummy is not available, please hang up and try again.’

To which Dexter makes a beeping sound before ‘calling’ again and getting through to his father’s pretend phone service yet again, much to his frustration.

Mr Bracey ‘answers’ the call: ‘Thanks for calling. If you’d like to ask mummy a question, press one. If you’d like to ask daddy a question, please press two.’

‘Two’, responds Dexter. 

To which he is given the ‘automated’ response: ‘Daddy is currently offline.’

Dexter then tries the other option, saying ‘one’, only to be told ‘Mummy, is unavailable at this time’ in a realistically monotone manner by his father.

At this point the six-year-old launches into a relatable rant shouting down the stairs: ‘Ahh why are none of you available?’ 

His father, who is desperately trying not to giggle, interrupts in the ‘automated’ voice: ‘Thanks for calling, beep’.

The youngster calls down the stairs in frustration: ‘Ahh I need to tell you a question and it’s not even working out how I want it to.’

The clip was filmed by Dexter’s mother Tia Roos, 37, a town councillor for Weymouth, and mental health worker, who said it was the first time they had tried the ‘automated phone service’ on their son.

Ms Roos told MailOnline: ‘We had been playing this little game of mummy and daddy being unavailable for a while before I started filming.

‘He wasn’t impressed with the frustrations of not getting the response he wanted. It’s the first time we’d ever tried the telephone service on him.’

After filming the clip Ms Roos said she went to settle her son in bed again, who she said rated the telephone service ‘good’.

The mother-of-one added: ‘Hopefully we’ve prepared him for the telephone services he may handle later on in life.

‘Kids at the moment are struggling but parents also. The stresses of managing working from home as well as home schooling means we all need to just de-stress and laughter is a part of that.’
