I just called a practioner's office and received their voicemail. I can now tell you the exact hours each person works, how to access emergency services and if I would have hung on longer, I probably would have learned how to get a pizza delivered to my house.
Have you listened to your own voice mail message lately? Kids are adorable, but should not be used for voicemail that may be accessed by recruiters or people looking to do business with your firm. The messages with eight prompts are simply annoying. I'm hanging on by a thread here folks. If I can't get to you right away, I will call the guy across the street from you who isn't going to make me work so hard to reach him.
Got any pet peeves about businesses and their voicemails? Add a comment.
