Pet Peeve.

Okay, I understand, if I call you and leave you a message on your voice mail and you call me right back (within 5 minutes) and you have not listened to your message because you just noticed I called on your caller ID and you figured you would just call me back. I get that.

It is a complete other thing if I call you and leave a message on your voice mail and you call me back say like two hours later and did not check you message but you saw that I called on the caller ID and figured you would just call me back. You should have just listened to the damn message. That is what the voice mail is for.

Yes I am cranky today.

William,

What did you say? I wasn't listening.

Teri said...

OR I hate when someone calls you, and if you don't answer, repeatedly calls you back every minute. sorry, my pet peeve. leave a damn message already and I'll get back to you.

I agree with you, listen to the message if you're not gonna call me back within 5 minutes.

obviously it was one of your silly siblings, maybe that anonymous person who responded already?

Haha... that is funny we both titled our recent post the same name! What do you think that means exactly?
I have to admit, I am one of those you speak of... I hardly ever get the chance to speak on the phone so if I call, just tell me what the hell you wanted! LOL

Did somebody wake up on the wrong side of the bed this morning? ;)

I try to listen to the messages, but sometimes i by-pass the person's message when leaving a message....too long....

Don't be cranky--it's one full degree cooler today! We can do it!

Or how about when you come home and even though there is only one message from a person, the call display says they called TEN TIMES and the message is "I just called to talk"

That so, so makes me not want to call back.

THAT'S WHAT I KEEP TELLING MY HUSBAND!

Cat said...

I'm so confused...

And I am SO never calling you. Just saying.

Lazyness, that's all it is.

Stacie said...

UGH! My husband does that to me on a daily basis. It drives me insane! Just listen to the darn message for crying out loud. If I wanted to actually talk, I would have called him at work rather than his cell phone! Stacie

TBG said...

I hate voicemail you would so not like me! I call back all the time without listening the the actual message!

The Kept Woman said...

LOL at anonymous...

Anyway, I thought voice mail was so you didn't actually have to TALK to the person...

I had to laugh at your hidden message today because that was just what I was thinking. I was wondering if maybe Wyatt wasn't sleeping through the night and you were sleep deprived. You sound awfully cranky lately.

And your "anonymous" brother is HILARIOUS.

amen, on the pet peeve!

how about someone who calls, leaves a 2-minute message, and then calls TWO HOURS later [i was working] clearly, you cant have anything else to add to that rambly two-minute message. they just wanted to call again, in hopes of getting me 'in person' when i answered, the first thing they say is: did you get my message??? oy!

One of my pet peeves is when my hubby calls me back at work and says he's returning my call (he saw my # on call display). The reason I called was to check the messages on the voicemail! ugh, If I don't leave a message it obviously isn't important!
But I love him anyways :)

eclectic said...

Well, since my cell coverage is less than reliable, I may or may not receive a message even if one is left, so I've made it a habit of just checking the call log and calling back whomever called.

But I'm not calling you back now unless you leave a detailed message that I can play and analyze first. Not that you have my phone number. I'm just saying, I'm not calling you back. ;)

Kami said...

Okay. Will remember that. ;)

Jem said...

I hate voicemail...the thought of paying to listen to my messages drives me mad. I never listen to them!

Peanutt said...

I'm with TBG....I rarely listen to my voicemail. I don't really know why that is....

Akinoluna said...

See, that's why I don't leave messages. Everybody has caller ID anyways, and you never know if they got your message or not when you do leave one.

LizzieDaisy said...

Shit, that was for me wasn't it. Man, I can't believe I made a pet peeve list.
