Leave a brief message after the tone!

The other day I heard my dad make a phone call in another room. I could hear his muffled voice through the wall as he said what he had to say to the person, and after about 4 or 5 minutes he went silent. About 30 seconds later I heard him say something that completely blew my mind... "It's me again, I guess your voicemail cut me off." He was on the phone with this poor person's voicemail the entire time!!! Seriously Dad? In this technological age where entire hard drives can be stored on a microscopic chip and voicemails no longer require cassette tapes with a 30 second time limit, you should NEVER for any reason leave a message so long that you run out of time. A simple "Hey, it's ___. I'm calling regarding ___. Give me a call back when you get this." will do!! After listening to these messages I want to throw my phone out of a window because I am so annoyed. So please leave a BRIEF message in the comment box below if you share my frustration on this issue... "beep."
