Voicemail.

Hi, You've reached 917 555 3210, leave a message.

"Turn my swag on" comes on and plays its and entirety

Hello? Whats Good? Nah? I'm just chilling.....

Since the emergence of cell phones the greatest thing has been the voicemail, the voicemail is great because if you miss a really important call you can check the message out and get a synopsis of whats going on. Also works vice verse if it's someone you really do not care to speak to you can send them your voicemail. However with any good thing in life someone can turn a excellent thing into a horrible invention.

My absolute voicemail pet peeve is when you someone calls you and you call them back but you don't know who it is so you reach the voicemail hoping to get a name, SSN, Birth sign anything and the person just states their number like seriously why would you say you've reached the #, DUH I know I reached the # I called it. How hard is it to say Hi you reached Jessie @ 917 555 3210 and I'm unable to take your call leave a message?

In 2000 when i first got a cell phone it was cool to have a whole Jayz or Jarule song playing because you wanted your friends to hear how cool you are or at least thought you were. But in 2009 NO GROWN MAN/WOMAN should have Swag surfing or Turn my swag on playing for 3-4 Min's and still not identifying who you are. However nothing is worse than....

You have to be extremely bored or Extremely corny to think that pretending to be trick someone in believing that you really answered the phone is cool. I often wonder what goes on in the mind of people, I called my boy the other day to ask him where something was located because I realized I was talking to a scripted voicemail boy o boy did I feel like an asshole. Just like with the Passenger etiquette post there should also be Voicemail etiquette.
