Every normal man must be tempted, at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats
Any great words of wisdom ever spoken by the likes of Ronald Reagan or Art Bell can most likely be attributed to Mark Twain, Will Rogers, or the legendary writer/editor Henry Louis Mencken.

That said, let me ask you a question:
If a medical clinic makes an appointment for you with a designated provider months in advance, does it make any sense for their office to call you on the eve of the appointment date and leave a message on your VoiceMail telling you that you need to call their office back to let them know whether or not you want to confirm the appointment or cancel it?

I mean, what happens if you don't call them back?  Do they just take it upon themselves to up and cancel your appointment?

Why should they be putting that onus on you, instead of simply reminding you of your upcoming appointment?

As someone who relies on VoiceMail religiously, one thing I really detest to the hilt are the "Call me back!" messages.
It's recording whatever you say already!  You can say what you need to say while it's recording and I'll be able to hear it later on when I play it back!
That's why God created VoiceMail!  
So that the recipient doesn't have to be present when the call is made because he/she can STILL get the message later!
