Is it just me or is it irksome that the same unknown number calls me several times over a couple of weeks.... but never leaves a voicemail? My voice mail works. PLEASE LEAVE A MESSAGE! I don't ever answer numbers I don't recognize or come through as private. I hate being caught off guard. I wish they'd leave me a message.
Then again, I know some people who don't bother checking their voicemail at all. They will call the number back or answer even if they don't know who it might be.
So what do you prefer? Do you answer unknown numbers? Or do you wait for a voicemail?
