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.
