In any given week, I probably retrieve 15 or 20 business-related voice mails.
- For at least half of them, I cannot understand the person’s name. Period.
- Almost half leave their phone number so quickly that I have to go back through the voice mail several times to get the whole thing.
- There are always a few that I can never return because I cannot understand the phone number left for me no matter how many times I listen.
- And then there are the ones that leave no phone number at all, but expect me to call them back anyway.
