Grumps, Grouches and the Answering Machine

jpg-phonetextMy grump of the day is the infernal answering machines.  It used to be when you called some one they would answer if they were home.  If they were gone you just tried later.  If you are a Curmudgeon such as I the newfangled answering machines drive you nuts.  We are all familiar with the start of the message:

“Sorry we are not available to take your call, but please leave a message at the beep and we will get back to you”

In the first place they are not sorry they are just being lazy. Your not important enough for them to get back to you. The only thing that the answering machines are useful for is for telemarketers. It’s easy to hit the delete key:)

    Okay, but what if someone is just plain busy, or on another line, or fishing? 🙂

    Fishing is excusable, and like I said in the post you can always try back later. Since curmudgeons rule the world, then if you are busy or on another line you are suppose to drop everything. What could be more important than I ?
