Do you do this?

Do you call back unfamiliar numbers on your caller ID before checking your messages?

This drives me insane. We have about 20 different people here who might have made a phone call (and will leave messages if possible) and I have to play detective over and over because people just call back numbers on their caller ID.

Sorry, just my pet peeve of the day...

  • I actually don't call back numbers that I don't know unless they leave a message. If I don't know who you are and it wasn't important enough to leave me a message, it isn't important enough for me to call and find out who you are.

  • It depends on my mood. Sometimes yes and sometimes no.

  • No, I don't. If they can't leave a complete message, I don't return the calls. They can call me back it it is that important. I have too much to do to play detective to see who called me.

  • If it's a number I don't know, I let voicemail pick it up and I'll only call back if it's an actual person leaving a message. I don't call machines back.
