I think it’s rude, when I call someone, and the outgoing message on their answering machine says something like this:
“Please leave a short message...blah blah blah...and remember....keep it brief.”
Why is this okay? Would you say something like this if you met the message leaver in person?
It's kind of like flipping someone off from your car.
The thing is.... when you chastise me for my tendency to leave lengthy messages...it only makes me nervous....and I tend to ramble on even more. I swear I’m not doing it on purpose.
Maybe I am doing it on purpose, a little.
