Is There a Single Good Reason to Leave Voicemail?

Illustration for article titled Is There a Single Good Reason to Leave Voicemail?

Why do people leave voicemail? To annoy me? Us? There is absolutely no point, as far as I can tell. If you want to tell me something, and I'm not picking up my phone, send a text. At this point, voicemail is nothing more than an anxiety inducing surprise package. A red bubble of the unknown—that inevitably is left only because I was avoiding your call.

Sometimes, I won't call back a number if they didn't leave a voicemail.

Also, I still have many relationships with people that don't text, so sometimes getting info from a voicemail is handy. Plus, you don't have to actually have to interact with someone if you don't want to (thank GOD for Straight to Voicemail).
