Answering Machines

I hate answering machines. I really, really do. I hate voicemail, too.

Okay, so I don't really hate mine. I can listen to messages someone else has left me just fine.

I just have trouble leaving messages.

And yes, this can act as a barrier to employment -- I get incredibly awkward when trying to leave someone a message... and three guesses what that does to the impression my message leaves a potential employer with?


  1. The only thing to do is to write out a message ahead of time, in case you get the old "Please leave a message after the beep". That way you're not "caught off base" and can say something intelligent. Good luck, man.

  2. If that worked for me, I'd be golden. :-)
