Life as I know it… plus commentary

Is Voicemail the next thing to fade away?

Man, I hope so!

Voicemails are irritating.

Look how annoyed this lady is at getting a voicemail:

Voicemail has become annoying mostly because in today’s world there are faster, better, ways to get a hold of people.  Text messages instantly spring to mind.  So the holdouts are usually those people that like to talk.  This in fact is hastening the demise of voice mail because it’s these people that leave you long one sided conversations that ramble for minutes before getting to the point.

Obviously business is different.  While email is still preferred, sometimes it IS easier to just leave a voicemail for someone who needs a response from you.  And let’s face it… business lags a little behnid the real world. Otherwise, I probably wouldn’t have this dinosaur called a fax machine in here.

So let’s toast then to the demise of voicemail.  If you can’t say it in 140 characters or less than you should say it in person or don’t say it at all.
