Truth: Get To The Point!

Voice Mail:  Hello you've reached the voice mail of ____ ______.  I am currently away from my phone, or I am not in the office.  Should you feel compelled to leave a message, please do so on my voice mail.  I do check it from time to time, even if I am not around.  I occasionally will check my voice mail to check on messages and will try to return your call if I am able to.   Depending on the nature of the call and the urgency, I will return your call in a reasonable time frame.  Here is my cell phone number if you really need to reach me (___) _ _ _ -_ _ _ _ .  Thank you so much for your time and leaving me a message. Have a wonderful day.

What was that?  That was in summary the voice mail of someone I called the other day.  I kid you not it lasted 30 seconds.  I had to listen to it twice, and then I busted out laughing. 

Are you kidding me?

Get to the point sista!

My voice mail is always the system generated voice mail, because I just don't care.  Just leave the darn message, and I'll get back to you whenever.  I'm still not sure which I HATE worse, voice mails or texting.

Man I know people who update their friggin voice mail everyday with a time stamp.  Why?  No one cares, why should you?  If anything, it's going to drive my away from speaking to you.  Time is money!

Get to the point.

Voice Mail messages have to be a glimpse measure of narcissism.  You can tell who wants to hear themselves talk.  You can tell who takes themselves way too seriously.  You can tell you is brown nosing the boss, as to make a good impression. 

Don't forget to put your long worded voice mail on your resume people. It will really knock em dead.

Just do what do when people call - I answer this way:  PIZZA HUT, CAN I HELP YOU?     
A certain percentage hangs up...and I call that SUCCESS!
