I Hate Listening to Voice Mail Messages

Just leave a text message already! 67 People

    I used to hold the phone away from my ear

    while clearing messages. Until I found out that I could dial " 3 3 " to skip listening to them. Thank god. My mailbox is full now of messages from work ugh

    If God Had Voice Mail Thank you

    for calling heaven. I am sorry, all of our angels and saints are busy helping other sinners right now. However, your prayer is important to us and we will answer it in the order it was received. Please stay on the line. If you would like to speak to: God, press 1. Jesus...

    Don't Check Voicemails

    At one point, I used to have a ton of creditors and solicitors call my phone constantly.  After constantly dealing with them, I got tired and let their calls go to voicemail.  Then at some point in the future, I would sit down and listen to the backlog.  I...

    Stupid Phone..

    I HATE listening to voicemails. Especially one's from my dad.. He calls and says "Where are you?" or just "Call me" and hangs up. It's such a waste of my time. They invited this thing called "Caller ID" and I would obviously call my own father back when I'm available.. My...

    I let my voice mail fill up. I dread listening to messages. It's more of an anxiety thing for me though...When I see a certain person has called I'm afraid to hear what they have to say....and a lot of times I just don't feel like talking. Then I get a guilty conscience..when I...

    What A Nuisance

    I ******* hate voicemail. There are few things more irritating than seeing that little envelope flashing on my phone. It's like, I see the missed call from you. I obviously don't need you to leave me a message telling me that you called and you want me to call you back. If it...

    It Takes Too Much Time and Eats Up My Minutes!

    Just send me a text already!  My nephew doesn't even have his voice mail box set up!  Now that's the way to do it!  I just let my voice mail box fill up and rarely listen to them.  If I miss something important, so be it!  They'll call back!  And...
