    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...

    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...

    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

    Please Do Not Leave Your Message After The Tone!

    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...

    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...

    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...

    That envelope that sits on my cell phone screen is the only reason i EVER listen to my voice mail... because seeing it reminds me of a nagging voice in the back of my mind "you should check that- what if its something you need to know NOW .. and is too important to wait for...
