Last week a gentleman called and left a message on my voicemail.
He said, “I see that your voicemail says that you do not accept phone queries.”
Then he proceeded to query me by phone.
What part of my voicemail message did he not understand? I was sorely tempted to jot down this person’s name so in the event that he did a) figure out he wasn’t excepted and b) figure out how to query me through the proper channel, I could immediately send my “NO” response without even given him due consideration.
Then I remembered. I’m a nice person. Perhaps it was one of those strange brain farts that kidnapped his better sense at that exact moment and he was compelled to leave the message. Now he is filled with remorse. Or better yet, has learned some sense.
I just hit the delete button.
