The person you have dialled is not available…

We’ve all called someone only to get their annoying voicemail recording.

A few of us will leave a message, but a majority will just text them instead.  But if we don’t intend to leave a message, why do we wait until we’ve heard the entire voicemail recording before hanging up?

What are we expecting to hear at the end?  The winning lottery numbers?  A sonnet?

Being English, it’s entirely possible we don’t want to offend the recording by cutting it off mid-sentence so we wait until the very end before we hang up; just in case.

We don’t want to appear rude after all.

Please leave your comments after the beep.
