If you are going to leave a VM for someone please, for the love of all that is holy, use some common sense and:

1) Dont speak at 100mph
2) Leave your number, clearly, twice is nice
3) If you have a thick accent or mumble and expect a call back then read #1 and #2 a few times and practice them.

I have been listening to and having someone else listen to a voice mail from a vendor that I need info from and for the life of me I cannot understand his name, number or extension and if I call the number he called in on I get into a main hub with no human

Yep. Good advice. Let me add if you write business emails, use correct grammar, use proper verb subject agreement and leave off the !!! points. I am wondering if a course in basic phone skills, and simple English communication is needed.

Oh yeah, I used to love guessing game voice mails.

Hey Dave, I need to talk to you as soon as you get back in the office. Give me a call. (Click)

Years ago a car dealership I worked at made every employee, as part of intake, complete a basic phone course that covered how to use the actual phone but also answering protocol and some things you would think were common sense.

I have over 120 tax clients & get text messages expecting me to know who they are! I have to text back "Who are you?"

My favorites (Roll Eyes) are the ones that drone on for three minutes and leave a phone number only at the end and spoken as fast as they can recite it.

You must have gotten a message from my wife.

I have badgered her about this for years. Speak slowly. Speak clearly. Don't blurt out your number, say it slowly and then repeat it so they don't have to listen to the message multiple times.

It's gotten to the point that I just delete her message and call her rather than try to decipher it.

Try getting a voice mail in French, when you don’t speak French!

I still love them. Because my wife is expert-level at leaving messages without a damn topic.




They don't think it be like it is, but it do.

I just don't listen to my VM, okay I rarely do...maybe 1 in 20.

If I know your number I will call you back or text you.
