Typically, when I leave a message for someone, I listen to their message. Somewhere in the back of my mind, I am making sure I have the right number and then I say what I have to say. So then, why do I get a lot of messages left on my phone by random people? For a time, I was getting these calls from a woman’s secretary, letting her know what all she had done – in terms of meeting preparations, etc. I just got a call for “Rusty” from “Todd”.
Here’s what my message says: “Hey, it’s Claire, I can’t get to my phone right now but if you leave me a message, I’ll get back to you.”
So what is up with people not hearing that I AM NOT their friend, boss, etc.?
