One of my old colleagues would call and leave a voicemail on my cell phone whenever he sent me an email. There's no need for that bud, just send the email. I wish there was a nice way to tell people not to leave voicemails for you. I heard about one brave person who, instead of saying "Please leave a message after the beep" on their machine, said something like, "I'm not here. If you're tempted to leave me a voicemail, don't. Instead please summarize the contents of your voicemail and text it to me. Thanks." As a passive-aggressive method I'm going to call myself and leave so many voicemails that when I get calls my message will say, "Sorry, this user's voicemail is full."
