I love roboclals left on my answering machine. They are so easy to delete.
On an unrelated topic, since moving to the new home I have been barraged with voicemails (usually in Spanish, but not always) for a variety of people. For example, a soccer Dad leaving detailed instructions to another soccer Dad on carpooling their little darlings. Also, several for an anesthesiologist, the last one which made an offer to hire him as a consultant for $45,000/month (!). I was tempted to inhabit the guy's character and obtain a one month advance (cash preferred).. What amazes me is that there are at least half a dozen different indivisuals who recently had my phone number. How long does Verizon wait before reassigning recently abandoned listings?
