Things that Drive Me Nutz!!!

You call someone. It goes to voicemail. You leave a concise but detailed voicemail so that when that person calls you back, in this case one of my supervisors, they can already know what you need and hopefully be prepared with the applicable fucking answer. You receive a call later from said person who says they are returning your call followed by silence. You ask, knowing already, if they got your voicemail. They reply that they saw a voicemail but didn't listen. You sigh and re-ask the question, all the while pondering how humanity ever managed to rise to any kind of dominance in the animal kingdom when logic and reason seem as distant from their natural behavior as oogling boobs is from any guy on the show Project Runway which my wife watches and I can't seem to escape.

Moral of this story: listen to your damned voicemails before calling people back or just ask for an intelligence challenged phone without it.

Hint: it's probably over in the section of the phone store where there seems to be a gathering of idiots drooling over the counter, the phones, themselves, and others.

I've said my peace. [deep breath]

Be swell...

  3. Or you could just tell them to call you back instead of reciting a monologue into their voicemail.
