A woman has shared the rather mortifying experience she overheard her roofer insulting her in an accidental voicemail message.

Daisy Mae Spain, 27, says she received the seven-minute voicemail just minutes after the workman left her home last month, in which he branded her a "lazy slob" and ripped into her.

In the voicemail, the man, who was recommended to Daisy Mae on an app, also criticised her appearance, saying that "she used to be pretty, but she isn't now".

He went on to call her a "lazy slob", moments after leaving her home on the Wirral, Merseyside.

Daisy Mae was shocked to receive the foul voicemail (

Daisy Mae said: "I was looking for someone to come and cover my vents in the roof because last year, some birds nested in the loft.

"I love animals and when one bird got left behind, I ended up nurturing it until it could be freed.

"I just didn't want birds nesting in the loft again.

"He didn't come in, I met him at the door and pointed up. I had my joggers on and my hair in a bun because we're in a lockdown and that's what he's judged me on because he didn't come inside.

"As he left, he called to make sure it was my number but forgot to hang up. He said he'd seen my photo on the app and I used to be stunning but I'm not anymore.

"It was really hurtful, it just wasn't nice to hear and it was really strange because he was about 60 and I thought he was a nice older man.

"He just shouldn't have been making comments about my appearance."

The woman text the roofer and he apologised profusely (

Daisy Mae added: "I have fibromyalgia, so my mobility is restricted, and everyone has put on a couple of pounds over the past few months.

"I have autism so I'm socially awkward and usually let my husband answer the door. I really regretted answering it."

Daisy Mae said she was left feeling humiliated and quickly contacted the handyman to confront him. Clearly embarrassed, he responded with an apology.

"I called him and just told him that I'd heard the voicemail and heard him call me a lazy slob and I didn't want him coming to the house but he didn't say anything so I hung up and text him saying how unprofessional he'd been," she said.

"I was so angry. He text back saying he was sorry and felt ashamed and he obviously was but it didn't take away what he'd said.

"It really affected my self-esteem. It knocked my confidence and I really dipped for a few days. I felt like I needed to change myself completely."

The woman said the experience was mortifying (

As horrible as it was, the incident was a turning point for Daisy Mae, who says she's feeling more confident than ever after becoming even more successful at work as an Ann Summers team ambassador.

"After a few days I perked back up and realised that he doesn't matter, I have an amazing husband who absolutely loves me and I won the Woman Summers 2021 award which is my proudest achievement," she said.

"It doesn't matter what an old man thinks. Women don't need to be accepted by others, they just need to accept themselves and love every part of themselves."
