Surely if someone phones me & is greeted by a 'friendly' voicemail stating that I am busy just now, but will phone back as soon a possible, the most they would do is leave a message & wait for the call back
I have one or two clients that leave the message, then phone back two minutes later on a regular basis FFS :mad:

There are times I have to concentrate on a design or I may be driving (I never use the phone on the road) - I might even be 'taking the kids to the pool' :tut: - why bloody mither me when the voice mail says it all? :rant:

That is all....

I guess my rant is slightly different though - they do leave a message & still phone me back 2 minutes later :p

Good rant, not fond of the

Missed calls: Joe Bloggs - 14 calls
Voicemail: 9 New messages
Texts: From Joe Bloggs "Jon, call me back"

scenario!

Also people who say in their voice message

"Hi Jon, just calling about blah blah blahdy blah ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz......... Blah (2 minutes of crap) . . . . anyway, I'll talk to you about it again when you call back"

Well why did you just leave a 3 minute message covering the subject in finite detail if you want me to call you back and expect me to listen to this rubbish again? Huh? Tell me?!!!!!

Maybe it's more specific than just up north, maybe it's a Lancashire thing ?
must be, more like a northwest thing, we have our own language up here:lol:

It's a northern word for sure - we use mither up here but as a verb rather than a noun.

Verb: mither mI-dhu(r)
Usage: UK, dialect

  1. (north UK) to fuss, pester or annoy someone
Derived forms: mithers, mithered, mithering


:thumbs:



Back on topic: Yes, I get parents mithering me like that all the time.

What PG said......I understood Jon perfectly, despite him being a southerner from Manchester........:lol:

And I do empathise with your rant Jon....my variation being the people who ring you and spend 10 minutes explaining why they are going to be 15 minutes late.......
