  •  Oh, yes, those people! (15+ / 0-)

    There is one woman in particular who calls me occasionally and talks into the machine for her entire timeslice, and sometimes calls back and talks some more. I used to listen carefully to the entire message, convinced that it would eventually prove to have some kind of important content. But then I noticed that a) it was just blather, and b) if I called this person back, she would launch into the entire speech over again, just as if she had said nothing into the machine except "Call me". So I quit listening to the message and now I just call back when I have time to listen for a while.

    The offsetting feature with her is that she is a loyal friend who has done many things to help me over the years. In particular, she knows the best way to get anywhere, and it is much better when possible to ask her rather than look it up online.
