I have voicemail, but I never check it. If someone calls and I see they left a voicemail, I assume it’s some what important. From that, I think that if it really is super important, they will send me an email. I like email best. Paper trail ftw.

It’s funny, I saw an internet meme today that said “My voicemail should say “Just hang up and text me!”  It’s so true!

@Hyperventilate:  Same here, usually after staring at it for a day or two. I hate voicemails. If you don’t ahold of me right away either text me or call me back.

@Deejayelle:  Yeah. My mum and sisters! They have their phones on them all the time, and they’re always texting their friends or whatever every time I see them, they never leave their phones alone!… but pretty much every time I try to call them, they never answer!

The thing that REALLY annoys me is when I get a call from them, race around the house to answer and miss it by two seconds… so I try and ring them back, immediately… and they don’t answer! I mean, come on, surely you should still be within a 10 foot radius of your phone in the time it takes for me to call you back! What the hell!

My mom is the only one who leaves voicemail anymore, and that is only because she is bad with technology (can’t grasp texting). I think that most people prefer texts now.

I usually check my voicemail mainly because I have various docs calling me to give results and what not on it every so often. But I hate it when I call someone and they text me back instead of calling me. Tempts me not to text back for hours instead because there has to be a reason for me to call you instead of texting you.

If someone from work calls me and it’s during the evening/weekend/day off etc, fuck yes I’m ignoring that. I like to keep work and life entirely separate, and don’t even think about work when I’m not there. So maybe that’s what she thinks too.

@Deejayelle:  I don’t think anyone I work with checks their voicemails except for my manager.

She actually made a joke to someone visiting from corporate that we all avoid phones like the plague.
