Stupid Answering Machines

I would just like to inform everyone that on one of my first calls at work (I’m not “on the phones” yet) I got one of those horrible answering machine messages where the person says “Hello?” and then waits and you talk like an idiot and then they say “Helllooo???” and you shout “HELLO CAN YOU HEAR ME?” and then they laugh at your via the recording and tell you to leave a message.  I HATE BEING TRICKED!
