Send SMS instead of leaving a voicemail
. Does this sound familiar? You need to get a quick message to someone, so you call them on their cell phone, only to find you’ve interrupted them in a meeting. So they tell you to hang up, call back and leave a message. So you call, and then you wait for the voicemail greeting to end, and finally leave your message. Then your friend has to call into their voicemail, and listen to your message, then call you back, and of course by then you’re not available. So your friend gets thrown into your voicemail, and over the course of a few days you realize the two of you are spending more time talking to voicemail than to each other. Now if you’re between the ages of 15 and 29, you probably are laughing about this because you use text messages instead. So here’s a word to the rest of us caught up in voicemail tag: learn how to send text messages from your phone. Once you get the hang of it, it’s fast, easy, and really effective.
