You know what's really annoying?
I'm really getting annoyed with the voice mail service that most mobile phone companies offer. Why why why after we hear our friend say "I can't get the phone, please leave a message," do we need to hear some robotic woman recite options we never have used, never will use, and don't need to know about? If you call me, and get my voicemail, you get my message (something witty, yet understated, usually) then this:

To page this person press 5 now.

Then it beeps. That's not so bad.

Some of my friends' voicemails say more like: To leave a voice message, wait for the tone. (gee, thanks, what would I do without you?), to leave a numeric page press 5, to activate this person's homing device press star star, or to find out what this person is wearing out tonight press star 7.

This is but one example of companies treating you like you have the intelligence of a inbred howler monkey. And that's probably insulting the monkey.

    Most voicemail boxes give you the option to turn all that off... so, blame the owner of the cell phone.

    What I hate is how you're leaving a message and then it cuts you off and says "to leave a message..."

    Hello? That's what I was just doing!
