Have you noticed that cell phone voice mail has become really stupid recently? It didn't used to be, though. It has been my experience that I would call, get the person's message, and then just BEEP. But now it's more like:
"Hi this is Bob, I'm not here so leave me a message" Fine so far. Then the annoying part comes (the MOST annoying parts are bolded).
"If you wish to leave this person a message press 1 or stay on the line until the beep. For other options, press 2 (or whatever number)"
(I press 1; because if I don't it takes it a good 10 seconds to beep)
"At the tone, leave your message. To end, press 5 (or whatever) or just hang up."
No friggin' kidding?! You mean, after knowing how to to use answering machine for what, at LEAST 15 years (I don't remember them before the age of 9 because I never used the phone, but I'm sure they've been around longer), we now have to be TOLD how to hang up? And you know this is probably the result of some idiot consumer who called over and over to the cell phone company to get them to change it like that. Hmm...I wonder if my cell voice mail insults people like this. Will have to check.
